Patenting more and getting less return?

I/P Updates talks about the book "The Patenting Paradox, A game-based approach to improve patent management" by Arnaud GASNIER, which describes the tendency of many companies, research organizations and universities to patent more and more; but with little value being extracted from patents.

That description reminds IPBiz of LBE's 1997 paper: X-ray diffraction used to measure levels of sp[2] and sp[3] carbon in fossil fuels : A microcosm of the 1990's, working harder and getting less. The address for correspondence, Pennie & Edmonds, 1155 Avenue of the Americas, New York, New York 10036-2711, needs an update. For those that don't remember, that paper discussed, among other things, the refusal of the editor of the ACS journal, Energy & Fuels, to correct even an erroneous citation.
