US "toying" with patent reform

In an op-ed/letter in the Globe and Mail, one finds the text: The U.S., the biggest market by far, is toying with patent reform that would make it harder to defend a patent, or lower the settlements in infringement cases.

Of Mosaid:

Today, Mosaid licenses and invests in patents, either by producing them or, more likely, by buying them from other tech companies.

This industry has been a good one for the past 15 or so years, growing, we're told, from $15-billion in 1990 to $500-billion today, and producing fabulous wealth for investors (and even more for lawyers).

Mosaid, meanwhile, has just finished a transformation into a pure-play patent licensing outfit that has lowered costs and streamlined the business.
