The STRONGER Patents Act of 2017

Over the past several weeks, CIFE provided critical facts related to the protection and promotion of intellectual property, specifically related to the current U.S. patent system and The STRONGER Patents Act of 2017. 

The STRONGER Patents Act of 2017:

Support Technology & Research for Our Nation’s Growth and Economic Resilience

A number of changes over the past decade have weakened the U.S. patent system, from Supreme Court decisions to the unintended consequences of new post-grant administrative proceedings at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. This weakening of U.S. patent rights has led innovation – and the jobs and economic growth that go with it – to increasingly move overseas, along with the venture capital that funds so much of our start-up and entrepreneurial growth.

The Center for Innovation and Free Enterprise supports the STRONGER Patents Act of 2017. This legislation will help restore the historic strength of the U.S. patent system.
