Patent Debate Heats Up
The debate over patent reform heated up this week in light of a recently announced agreement in the Senate with regard to the Patent Reform Act. On March 4th, Chairman Patrick Leahey, Ranking Member Sessions and others on the Judiciary Committee announced a compromise agreement.
The proposal maintains the previous Senate compromise on damages and also improve the post-grant review process from previous versions. Read the bill.
Over the last several months, MDMA has continued its advocacy efforts on patent reform, encouraging Members of Congress and their staffs to support proposals that will promote innovation and ensure adequate protections of intellectual property.
