Mossoff Comments on STRONG Patents Act

Professor Adam Mossoff comments on the STRONG (Support Technology and Research for Our Nation’s Growth) Patents Act, which was introduced in the Senate last week.

Mossoff said of the patent reform legislation, “Instead of weakening the property rights of all inventors, it takes a balanced and targeted approach, addressing issues of legitimate concern in our patent system. It appropriately targets identified bad behavior, such as the few patent owners’ abusive practices of sending deceptive demand letters. More importantly, though, it protects inventors, startups, and small businesses, and it puts an end to patent office fee diversion once and for all.”
