America has been on the cutting edge of innovation for over 200 years because of a strong U.S. patent system. Congress now has the opportunity to pass the STRONGER Patents Act, a bipartisan bill, introduced by both Senator Coons (D-DE) and Senator Cotton (R-AR) in the Senate, and Representative Stivers (R-OH) and Representative Foster (D- IL) in the House, aimed at restoring the protections our inventors, universities and start-ups need to keep America an innovative leader.

“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.
