The purpose of this article is to emphasise that we have to learn from previous experience when addressing the issues of patent law and climate change in order to suggest appropriate solutions. If we address the problem while turning a blind eye to former failures we will never succeed. Especially in this area, where traditional environmental law and traditional patent law have had their glory days, there are lessons to be learnt by future lawmakers and policymakers working in the field of climate change.
