19 Wake Forest J. Bus. & Intell. Prop. L. 11
Patent laws by their very nature disclose an exclusionary right upon
the patent owner, and it is for this reason that patent laws often become
controversial. Whether it be in defining the powerful rights given to
the patent owner or balancing patent laws with other laws, patent laws
can be very troublesome to the legal scholar. In addition, because of
the broad grant of rights given to the patent owner, the patent system is
ripe for abuse from many different fronts.
