NATURE gets it wrong on patent reform bills

The post in the journal Nature titled

Congress seeks to quash patent trolls

Revised legislation would spare universities from being penalized in the same way as unscrupulous companies.


incorrectly relates the Senate PATENT Act and the House Innovation Act:

The process is moving quickly. The Senate Judiciary Committee plans to vote on the bill by the end of the month, readying it for a final Senate vote this summer, and the House of Representatives’ Judiciary Committee is likely to vote this week on a similar measure.


They are not "similar" as to "loser pays." The Innovation Act presumes "loser pays" but the PATENT Act does not.
