Senate Passes Patent Bill

Posted on 9/9/2011

The Senate passed patent reform legislation (H.R. 1249) yesterday. The legislation, which includes important provisions to create a procedure to re-examine business-method patents as an alternative to costly litigation, will now go to the President for his signature, as the Senate cleared the House-passed bill without amendment. President Obama referenced the bill in his address to a joint session of Congress last night, citing Congress' work on the bill as "the kind of action we need" to improve American competitiveness.
