    As I have recently written on my blog, Bessen and Meurer’s figures and conclusions are highly questionable.
    Their source data suffers from selection bias.
    Their definition of NPE includes individual inventors, universities, and non-competing entities (i.e. operating companies which do generate innovation, but asserting patents outside the area in which they make products and compete).
    There are no error bars (confidence intervals) on their final results, including that $29 billion figure.
    And the numbers just don’t make any sense when you look at them in context. If Besson and Meurer are right, less than 0.1% of US companies are bearing NPE-related patent defence costs amounting to around 10% of the total national R&D spend by all businesses!
    But you can’t fault their knack for PR!
