Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va) has reintroduced a patent reform bill, known as the Innovation Act, that enjoyed bipartisan support last year, but was killed by Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt). The prospects for the bill, which would undercut the business model of so-called patent trolls, are bright since Republicans now control both House of Congress and President Obama has long opposed patent trolling. Once again, though, the real action is expected to take place in the Senate — where influential figures like Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Jon Cornyn (R-Tx) are likely to again offer their support. On the other side, trial lawyers and the patent trolls are expected to push to water it down, in part by warning that it will threaten “innovation.” (See “5 key questions for patent reform in 2015” to see how this might all play out.
