The UK IP Office commissioned research with CambridgeIP to examine some of the
questions raised by the UK government's Hargreaves Review of IP and Growth. The study focuses on two broad issues: a) the
effects of patent thickets on innovation and market dynamics; and b) the role of technology
standards and patent pools as a possible response to the emergence of patent thickets. Our
research was based on a case study of the emerging space of Telehealth, and particularly
on the use of patents for wireless-­‐enabled medical devices. Our methodology used a
combination of patent landscaping around 5 technology areas, interviews with industry
experts, and scholarly literature review.
