Innovation Alliance Statement on House Judiciary Subcommittee Hearing on Patent Legislation

Washington D.C. – In advance of the U.S. House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet Hearing being held on Wednesday March 25 on patent legislation, Innovation Alliance Executive Director Brian Pomper issued the following statement:

“The American patent system has served as the driving force of our nation’s innovation economy for nearly 225 years. The Innovation Alliance has always advocated for a thoughtful, deliberate approach to any changes made to this system and urged a balanced approach in which any changes intended to tackle abuse do so without hurting inventors, startups, and other responsible patent holders. We encourage the House Judiciary subcommittee to listen to all stakeholders in the patent debate and search for a balanced approach as it considers patent legislation.

The Innovation Alliance will continue to work with lawmakers to ensure American innovators and job creators are able to flourish under a strong patent system; and we reiterate our support for the STRONG Patents Act, which would help ensure the U.S. remains a world leader in innovation.”
