America has been on the cutting edge of innovation for over 200 years because of a strong U.S. patent system. If Congress passes harmful patent legislation, it will undermine the system that has paved the way for every invention since the automobile. That will mean fewer new ideas, fewer jobs and a weaker economy. We must keep the foundation of American innovation strong for generations to come.
“There are passionate innovators out there that want to improve health care and transportation and that want to figure out ways to cure our environmental problems and our energy problems. But all of them are working hard at something for which there has to be an incentive. There has to be a reward if they succeed.”

We support improving patent quality without diminishing intellectual property rights. Proposed measures to overhaul patent law would significantly weaken the foundation of the system and open the floodgates for infringement. Preserving inventors’ intellectual property rights is the key to promoting economic growth.
