Hi! Patent reform continues to progress. Yesterday the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the House Energy & Commerce Committee held a hearing on The Impact of Patent Assertion Entities on Innovation and the Economy. I live-tweeted the hearing on @PatentProgress. If you scan our feed, or the #fixpatents hashtag, you’ll get a good idea of what was raised by members and witnesses. The date for the markup on Rep. Goodlatte’s Innovation Act has not been introduced, although it looks like that will happen next week. There is also a rumor that Senator Leahy will be introducing his own patent reform bill tomorrow or early next week. We’ll be waiting to see what happens.
Did we miss something? Questions or suggestions? Feel free to leave a comment below, mention us on Twitter (@PatentProgress), or email us: patentprogress[AT]ccianet[DOT]org
