A Message from the Big Tent: #FixPatents!

Strong Patent Reform is not just about technology companiesAs Josh wrote about a while back, a wide variety of organizations have been meeting about patent troll reform. CCIA, along with 49 other groups representing industries as diverse as banking, retail, and advertising, has signed a letter to the leadership in the House and Senate. The letter is being delivered this morning.

The letter praises all of the attention that Congress has been paying to the problem of patent trolls, including in particular Chairman Leahy of the Senate Judiciary Committee and Chairman Goodlatte of the House Judiciary Committee.
