Senator Leahy on patent reform

Senator Leahy, from bignews on Feb. 28:

This bill will be an example of what we can do when we work together – a true bipartisan product. Intellectual property is the engine of our economy. Reforms to our patent system will protect inventors and promote innovation. They will stimulate the economy and create jobs without spending American tax dollars.

I expect that we will be able to release details as they are finalized in the coming days, after consultation with the House. I look forward to working closely with all members of the Committee who have probably spent more time on patent law than we would like. I appreciate the seriousness with which they have approached this issue.

from IPBiz on Feb. 25:

it might be easier to pass a soft ball patent reform bill and get some traction on bipartisanship and working together.
