BSA Applauds Goodlatte’s Push for Patent Reform in Early 2015

WASHINGTON, DC — November 18, 2014 —

BSA | The Software Alliance today commended House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) for committing to make patent reform a priority in the next Congress. Goodlatte spoke on his plans to quickly move on a strong reform bill during the US Chamber of Commerce's Global IP Summit held today in Washington.

“There is clear, bipartisan consensus that action needs to be taken to curb patent litigation abuses while safeguarding incentives for innovation,” said BSA President and CEO Victoria Espinel. “The 113th Congress has made great strides in developing reforms to ensure a highly functioning patent system but work still remains for the next Congress on this important issue. We applaud Chairman Goodlatte for his continued leadership and look forward to working with him to push patent reform forward early in the 114th Congress.”
