During the past decade, a series of court opinions have made it harder for patent owners to stop infringers from using their patented technology or to obtain any meaningful compensation for unauthorized use. Many times, this has resulted in the financial ruin of businesses that don't have the deep financial pockets to stop intellectual property theft.
As a result, we formed Protect American Innovation, a coalition of businesses, innovators and inventors, to spread the word about patent abuse and to push for effective change in the U.S. Patent System.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
As we build consensus and push for stronger patent protection we would like to hear your experience with weak patents and how it has affected you or your business. It will help us as we push for patent reform and for passage of the STRONGER Patents Act.
