Inventor’s Project Briefing Event: The Forgotten Inventor: Inventors Defend Intellectual Property


The Forgotten Inventor: Inventors Defend Intellectual Property

Inventors create their own event to discuss and explain why intellectual property protections are important and should not be weakened. Patent legislation, HR. 9, is quickly moving on Capitol Hill. Yet, only one inventor has been asked to testify at a hearing. This event is designed to right this oversight. Inventors from California, North Carolina, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, Indiana, Minnesota, Virginia, and more states will be in town to discuss the issues that the current patent reform legislation will cause for innovators.

In the name of attempting to mitigate so-called patent “Trolls” Congress is lowering the ability to protect intellectual property. In fact, many of the provisions miss the abusive practices altogether and make it harder to defend intellectual property. Join us on Wednesday April 15th to hear from a group of inventors willing to take a day off from inventing to help defend the innovation economy for the next generation of inventors.
