SIIA Comments on the Innovation Act
The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) released a statement applauding the House Committee on the Judiciary’s approval of H.R.9, aka the Innovation Act, which is designed to decrease patent infringement lawsuits.
“Today’s action was an important step forward for patent reform and a positive sign that Congress can get patent litigation abuse legislation passed this year,” says Mark MacCarthy, SIIA’s VP of public policy. “Abusive patent litigation is a significant drain on the American economy and it is doing real harm to innovation in our country. It is increasingly clear that leading members on both sides of the aisle share a desire to find an effective solution that can meet with bipartisan and bicameral approval.”
