house Bill H.R. 9

Reforming Patent Law to Reduce Frivolous Lawsuits

Argument in favor

Frivolous patent lawsuits discourage innovation, and are often settled because the cost of taking the case to trial are so high. Discouraging patent trolls from gaming the system protects legitimate intellectual property rights.

Removing frivolous lawsuits leaves space in our courts for cases that actually matter.

We need to stop patent trolls that own broad reaching patents from suing actual inventors with actual uses for a patent.

Argument opposed

This bill is so broad that it may actually hurt small businesses that are suing because their patent rights have been infringed. If it discourages those small companies from asserting their rights, it will have done more harm than good.

When our crooked, greedy, Congress reforms itself, then they can worry about reforming others.

Undercutting our patent system in order to short-change lawyers seems unreasonable when one considers the effect such a bill could have on small start-ups, who would find it harder to protect their intellectual property.

When the US congress starts protecting the American inventors from the Chinese then we can focus on frivolus
