As the so-called “patent troll” issue comes into the spotlight, a Washington, D.C.-based economist and inventor believes that Congress needs to take a careful approach in coming up with legislation to update the nation’s patent and trademark laws.

Charlie Sauer, founder of U.S. Inventor, recently told Talk Business & Politics that pending legislation in Congress to target patent trolls could thwart innovation and prevent small business owners and entrepreneurs and affect a patent owner’s ability to protect the financial value of his ideas.
