Introduction

Welcome to Green Patent Blog, a site dedicated to discussion and analysis of intellectual property issues in clean technology. Although there a lot of blogs about intellectual property law and several about clean technology, I haven’t seen a site that places the ideas of this important industry into the context of the law that protects them. This blog seeks to do that by reporting on significant court decisions, highlighting interesting newly-issued patents and discussing other legal and technological developments in clean technology. I hope this site will provide some insight to those who develop and market clean tech and seek to protect the intellectual property rights in their technology. In Green Patent Blog I hope to contribute a little bit to protecting the ideas that are preserving the planet.
