Other Senate Democrats, however, are echoing warnings from biotechnology, research and other companies that the patent landscape has fundamentally changed, following recent Supreme Court decisions and past legislative changes just now taking effect. In a letter organized by the Innovation Alliance last week, a group of 240 businesses noted patent litigation has dropped 40 percent from 2013 to 2014.
"I agree we need to find a way of working together to clamp down on abuses. But I would urge a little caution as we consider any changes," said Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), another member of the Judiciary Committee.
