Today, the ongoing war against patent trolls
and the push for sorely-needed patent law reform took a massive step forward. House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) introduced the Innovation Act of 2013
, a long-awaited, aggressive piece of legislation that aims to thwart patent trolls and their spurious lawsuits. Chairman Goodlatte and his staff have been working hard on this bill for several months. They sought and received input from literally hundreds of stakeholders, including American businesses, members of Congress, the US Patent Office, prominent patent lawyers, judges, trade associations and educators. This is a well-thought out piece of legislation.
