  • CIPLA MARCH 26, 2019 Meeting on 26th Mar 2019 6:00:pm, at The Elm CIty (Graduate) Club
    Attorney Andrew Williams of Wolf, Greenfield and Sacks, P.C. presents on: What Ever Happened to the Patent Troll Problem? - The Past and Future of Patent Reform Legislation -- In 2013, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 3309, the Innovation Act, to help curb the perceived patent troll problem.  Even though this legislation was never enacted, the Supreme Court has rendered several decisions in the past few years that seeming addressed the concerns about so-called abusive patent assertion.  Is there still a need for legislation to reform the patent system, or has the pendulum swung so far that legislation is now required to respond to the Supreme Court patent jurisprudence?
