The last decade in the patent law field has been defined by “patent troll” alarmism; major judicial, legislative, and regulatory efforts to limit patent rights in response; and increased corporate budgetary pressures to justify and lower IP-related legal expenses. The general mood of IP conferences and publications has understandably reflected these developments. However, Louis Foreman—the immediate past president of the Intellectual Property Owners (IPO) Education Foundation—has been a refreshing contrast. He has taken the long-term view and remained focused on the benefits of America’s patent system. He is currently the CEO of Enventys and Edison Nation, which help turn innovations into consumer products.
