Abstract

Les sociétés occidentales sont en pleine mutation et sont devenues, à la fin du siècle passé, de véritables économies de la connaissance. Le brevet vise à rendre excluable cette connaissance et à stimuler, par ce biais, l’innovation. Sur le marché des brevets qui se développe petit à petit, certains acteurs, qualifiés de patent trolls, tirent parti d’un environnement juridicoéconomique qui facilite leur action : l’acquisition et/ou la détention de brevets, non pas dans le but de les exploiter industriellement, mais de les monnayer par le biais - de menaces - d’actions en contrefaçon.
