Last month, a bipartisan group of U.S. Senators and Representatives reintroduced The STRONGER Patents Act to fight the decline of the U.S. patent system. The legislation, which already has 6 cosponsors in the Senate and 19 cosponsors in the House, aims to reverse harmful congressional actions and court decisions that have led to lowered confidence in patent protections among small inventors, innovators, and investors. Importantly, it would help reinforce America’s global competitiveness by ensuring our system remains among the best in the world.
In addition to growing support on Capitol Hill, the STRONGER Patents Act continues to gain support beyond Congress, with a wide range of organizations, including the Association of American Universities, the American Conservative Union and the National Small Business Association taking notice and voicing their approval.
