Innovation on the Internet depends on the ability by entrepreneurs to protect intellectual property. But that protection could be threatened by a case pending at the U.S. Supreme Court.

To help us understand the importance of the case as it applies to the Internet and ecommerce, we are joined by Robert Kovelman, an intellectual property attorney and an expert in U.S. patent law. He discusses the issue with Practical eCommerce’s Kerry Murdock.
