Stop Patent Trolls with H.R.3309 Innovation Act

Primary tabs

Impact

Impact: 
Egregious, unfounded patent threats slow innovation and hurt small business. It's fine to protect worthwhile patents but suing companies for big payoffs isn't the answer. Innovative tech companies are bearing the brunt of this impediment by settling frivolous patent suits. It diverts capital away from the creation of new products and services.
