WASHINGTON, DC — May 17, 2013 —
BSA | The Software Alliance today applauded Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) for introducing the End Anonymous Patents Act (H.R. 2024) in the US House of Representatives.
“The ‘End Anonymous Patents Act’ will make the patent system more transparent and the marketplace more fluid and dynamic,” said BSA Director of Government Relations Tim Molino. “The bill would take the simple step of requiring patentees to file a notice of ownership. Increasing transparency in that way will improve technology adoption and licensing by making it easier for potential users of patented inventions to identify and connect with patent holders so they can agree on terms. BSA commends Rep. Deutch for introducing this legislation and looks forward to working with Congress to move it forward.”
