Patent policy is increasingly failing in its constitutionally enumerated purpose of “promoting the progress of the sciences and useful arts” as a result of patent trolling and an epidemic of granting low-quality patents. For conservatives and libertarians, this should be striking, as the Copyright/Patent Clause is the only clause in the Constitution that provides a specific purpose for granting the government that power.

In this report, we present a number of suggestions for practical reform to patent policy consistent with the original public meaning of the Patent Clause, which will foster more innovation, entrepreneurship, and economic growth. Patents are one of the primary ways the federal government regulates innovation and technology throughout the economy, and today it more closely resembles cronyism rather than sensible policy.
