Geee Posted July 11, 2014 Share Posted July 11, 2014 Washington Examiner: President Obama, mired in the worst political stretch of his presidency, can't even get a sure-fire win these days. To say the White House was bullish this winter about the prospects for patent reform would be an understatement. The Republican-controlled House gave Obama a rare victory in December when it overwhelmingly passed a bill to combat patent trolls -- companies that exist mainly to file lawsuits over infringement claims, using vague regulations to score settlements from businesses looking to avoid massive legal costs. Obama then took the rare step of addressing the esoteric issue in his State of the Union address, calling on the Senate to pass a “patent reform bill that allows our businesses to stay focused on innovation, not costly and needless litigation.” Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
