In contemplating intellectual property (IP) policy to drive growth, it is important to understand past experience and use that understanding to shape future perspective. This paper will provide perspective on the IP system’s past, specifically over the last 10 years. It will then examine the IP system today. And finally, this paper will look forward, in an effort not to predict the future but to provide a sense for what policy makers will need to consider to align the IP system with clear technological and economic trends, to optimally participate in global economic opportunity as we move into the third decade of the 21st century. Though much of this paper focuses on the U.S. system, the points explored apply globally.
