This chapter offers a comprehensive, descriptive account of patent pledges today. It identifies the industry sectors in which pledges appear, the patents that they cover, the commitments that they embody, and the forms in which they are made. This catalog of the forms and structures of patent pledges supports the development of an analytical taxonomy of patent pledges.
