The Future of Patents (for now) is Ex-USA

I have long (like 8+ years) been a proponent of the proposition that IP investors were too parochial, and that the future of IP was in Europe, Asia and elsewhere.   (In fact, I led a monetization campaign premised on that fact which achieved some small degree of notoriety….)  I am glad to see that the smart IP money concurs.   (I would be happier if the US were a better market for patents, but there is not much I can do about that.)
