Tell Congress: Fight Patent Trolls

The House of Representatives will vote on the Innovation Act of 2013 (H.R. 3309) this week.  As the EFF notes, this bill will make life harder for the trolls by:

  • making it easier and cheaper to fight against the trolls in court;
  • requiring trolls to make their cases for infringement publicly and with specifics;
  • protecting end users and consumers when they face suits from patent trolls.

While he have long viewed patents as barriers to innovation and have called for their elimination, this bill that makes it easier to fight patent trolls and deserves your support.
