Abstract

This paper analyzes the historical differences between copyrights and patents. Copyright law allows for criminal sanctions for violations. Patent law does not allow for criminal sanctions. The paper looks at this history and poses the question—Why the difference? The paper analyzes these differences and asserts that an imbalance exists between the two types of intellectual property that needs to be adjusted.
