Journalist: Even though it may be true that the system of patenting encourages patent holders to share information that they otherwise would not have made open because of the fear of competitors benefitting from the research done solely by the patent holder, patenting does severely retard the growth of innovations in a field as _________________________________________________________________________________________

Which of the following, if true, best completes the above passage?

A
only the patent holder is able to reap the monetary benefits for the amount of time the patent is valid.

B
not only do patent holders have the exclusive right to the patented technology but also to any kind of developmental research on it.

C
the information disclosed by the patent holder could educate the public by making them aware of previously unknown facts about a phenomenon.

D
the usual period for which a company can hold a patent is twenty years during which patent holder can license the patented innovation to others.

E
even though not all innovations that are filed for patents are granted the status, some of them are extremely informative and useful for developmental work.

Looking for reasons that would slow down the growth of innovations in the field.
Which of the following, if true, best completes the above passage?

A

Nothing to do with the growth of innovations. Out of Scope.

B
not only do patent holders have the exclusive right to the patented technology but also to any kind of developmental research on it.
This is it. It gives us the reason why the growth of innovations is slow. because only the patent holder and no one else can do any further research on it.

C
the information disclosed by the patent holder could educate the public by making them aware of previously unknown facts about a phenomenon.
This is the exact opposite of what we are looking for.

D
the usual period for which a company can hold a patent is twenty years during which patent holder can license the patented innovation to others.
Out of Scope.

E
even though not all innovations that are filed for patents are granted the status, some of them are extremely informative and useful for developmental work.
Irrelevant.
