"If people believe the pace of technological innovation has slowed in the past years, they are probably correct. As ZeroHedge pointed out in May, 'Venture capital investments in Silicon Valley fell almost 20 percent in the first quarter [of 2016] from a year earlier to $4.9 billion.' We would argue this is part of a larger trend. With such gigantic companies dominating the Internet, there is less room for groundbreaking innovation. These large companies act as gatekeepers, preserving what has already been accomplished and ensuring to a large degree that what is now developed doesn’t threaten what has come before. As usual, intellectual property rights are at fault." ()7/26/16)
