Qualcomm products mentioned within this post are offered by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and/or its subsidiaries.

In the latest issue of the World Intellectual Property Organization‘s monthly magazine, Don Rosenberg, executive vice president and general counsel for Qualcomm Incorporated, writes about the history of invention and innovation and points out that consumers may understand more than some policy makers the legal and economic framework that promotes technological advances.

“Worldwide, 90 percent of consumers said patents are necessary to promote invention…This invention and innovation environment could be put at risk by some commercial interests and misguided government agencies whose goal is to weaken patent rights.”
