SIIA Digital Policy Roundup: Patent Litigation Reform Legislation, EU Data Privacy Regulation, PTO Strategic Plan & Draft Cybersecurity Framework Released

Judiciary Chairman to Introduce Patent Litigation Reform Legislation House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) will introduce his patent reform bill today, and he has scheduled a Committee hearing on the legislation on October 29, entitled “Improving the Patent System to Promote American Innovation and Competitiveness.” The bill is expected to be very similar to the recent discussion draft released in September. SIIA believes that it is essential for Congress to promptly pass legislation that effectively addresses patent litigation abuse without harming the patent protections that spur innovation. We will continue working closely with Chairman Goodlatte and other congressional leaders to accomplish this objective.
