"The best explanation for why some patents are used and others are not is simple: Some patents are intrinsically more valuable than others. Many patents are not worth enforcing--either because the inventions they cover turn out to be worthless, or because even if the invention has economic value the patent does not. This Article examines what makes a patent valuable and how to identify valuable patents. We start from the assumption that litigated patents are at least a subset of the most valuable patents, and we have no reason to believe that valuable patents that are not litigated differ in any systematic ways from valuable litigated patents."
