Why Does This Matter?
The steady weakening of patent rights in the U.S. has undermined the ability of inventors to protect their innovations from infringement from large corporations and foreign entities. The STRONGER Patents Act says ‘enough is enough’ and ensures that patent rights are protected as a fundamental underpinning of our innovation economy.
WHAT WILL THE STRONGER PATENTS ACT DO?
- Treat patents like any other property
- Permit injunctions to protect patent owners against infringement during and after court cases
- Ensures fairness in Patent Office administrative proceedings, limiting repetitive and harassing challenges against inventors
- End diversion of patent application fees to other government spending
