Over 10,000 signatures helped get our petition across the finish line.
But the debate has just begun.
We still need Congress to understand that sweeping patent legislation would hold back inventors and undermine our country’s economic future.
Thank you to all who have joined the movement.
We the undersigned believe in the inventive American spirit, and the creativity that has made our country great. Our country was, after all, founded by a group of innovators who had the courage to try something new. That is why we oppose efforts by some multinational companies in Washington, DC to weaken patents and make it harder for inventors and start-ups like us to live out our dream of creating something and calling it our own. With our ideas, willingness to take risks, and hard work, we have just as much right to succeed as they have. It’s not fair that they want to change the rules to make it easier for them to free-ride on the ideas of others, and harder for us to protect our inventions and our investment in the future. Congress, don’t let them get away with it. Keep patents strong. Keep America strong. Inventors and start ups all across the country are counting on you. Don’t let us down.
