The House recently passed H.R. 3309, Innovation Act. Help us urge the Senate to move quickly and pass strong patent abuse legislation. Together we can drive the trolls back under the bridge. CEA continues to push to keep the momentum moving forward and hopes that in early 2014, legislation will be enacted to combat the recent explosion of lawsuits, and threats of lawsuits, brought by patent assertion entities.
According to a Boston University study
, patent troll lawsuits cost American companies more than $29 billion each year. Many small businesses and startups cannot afford to fight back or get funding to continue their businesses.
ACT NOW: We urge Congress to enact common-sense patent reforms as soon as possible. Help fight patent trolls! Text “TROLLS” to 52886 or click this link to contact your member of Congress on this issue.
