Lanjouw (1998), Lanjouw and Lerner (1997), and Lanjouw and Schankerman (1999) found that more valuable patents are more likely to be enforced through lawsuits. Tong and Frame (1994) related the inventive content of a patent to its number of claims, a finding only in part corroborated by Lanjouw and Schankerman (1997, 1999). Harhoff et al. (2003) found that patent citations to scientific sources, indicating a strong knowledge base, impact patents’ monetary value. In an investigation of biotechnology and pharmaceutical patents, however, Harhoff and Reitzig (2004) did not observe a significant influence of the number of scientific citations on the probability that a patent is opposed (considered as a value indicator).
