Making patent reform a priority

It’s heartening to see Senate Majority Leader Reid place patent reform legislation at the top of the agenda when Congress returns from recess.

The Senate will take up the House’s version of a bipartisan patent reform bill immediately after its summer recess in hopes of putting a bill on the president’s desk before the fall, The Hill reports.

The modernizing and strengthening of the U.S. patent system will encourage precisely what a strong patent system should – research and development of                                             innovative products and technologies throughout the economy.
