Big news this week! On Wednesday, Rep. Goodlatte, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, introduced the Innovation Act, along with ten other Representatives. This bill addresses a lot of the necessary reforms, and we are supportive of this effort. Our own Matt Levy was quoted about the broad bipartisan and bicameral support for these reforms in The Hill and The National Journal, and on the expansion of the Covered Business Method program, in the Washington Post and Ars Technica.
Yesterday, CCIA also filed comments as part of our participation in the PTO’s Software Partnership, which is the PTO’s outreach to the tech industry to help in improving patent quality and implementing the President’s initiatives on patent reform.
Patent Progress also had an interview earlier this week with Jorge Contreras about his new research on patent pledges and standards.
