ANA Signs Letter to Congressional Leadership Encouraging Patent Reform

On Wednesday, July 17th, ANA, along with more than 50 other organizations sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell urging reform of the patent system to combat the growing problem of many patent assertion entities, also called “patent trolls.” This letter, which is signed by a wide range of organizations representing a number of industries, comes as a number of members of the House and Senate have released bipartisan bills to combat the problem. ANA is working as a part of several coalitions to address the effects of patent trolls on industry.
