[Topic] Non-obviousness and Screening

        This paper offers a novel justification for positive non-obviousness requirement. An innovation consists of two steps: research and development. Research results in a blueprint of new technology while development makes it profitable. Only patented technology will be developed. One innovator who can be either efficient or inefficient must attract the financial support of venture capitalists for further development.       

        We show that, under some plausible assumptions, strengthening the non-obviousness  requirement alleviates ex ante adverse selection by discouraging inefficient type, but exacerbates ex post free-riding effect; while the socially optimal non-obviousness  requirement should large enough to achieve full screening, i.e., the inefficient type  should be totally excluded from the market. We also discuss how the research and development costs affect the optimal policy.
