Proposed patent legislation would weaken incentives to innovate and America's competitive edge.
Without strong patent protection, the door is open to infringement by large corporations and foreign competitors. That means fewer jobs for Americans and store shelves full of knockoffs. Let your elected representatives know that any efforts to address problems with patent litigation should be narrowly crafted to target only abusers and not weaken protection of inventors and small business.
Ask Congress to support a strong patent system.
WEAKENING THE PATENT SYSTEM WOULD HAVE A MAJOR IMPACT ON OUR ECONOMY
“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.”
–Dean Kamen, Founder

INNOVATION BUILDS ECONOMIC SUCCESS
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.
