"In the United States, as in many other countries, inventors are granted patents that give them sole rights of commercialization—and the right to block commercialization of arguably similar inventions—for a fixed period of time (20 years).1 By allowing inventors to capture the value they create, patents incentivize inventors to undertake the large upfront investments innovation requires."
