Dear Speaker Ryan and Minority Leader Pelosi:
H.R. 9 fails to account for a series of major judicial and administrative developments in patent law over the past year and a half. Since Congress considered similar legislation in late 2013, the Supreme Court has decided six patent cases which make it easier to defeat weak patents and discourage frivolous claims; the new IPR and postgrant review procedures created by the AIA just four years ago have only recently been fully implemented and also make it easier to invalidate patents that were inappropriately issued; the Federal Trade Commission and state attorneys general have been taking steps to combat abusive demand letters; and the Supreme Court has adopted changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure that will impose heightened pleading standards on patent cases by the end of the year.
We agree that there are abuses in the patent system, but we believe that Congress can work with us and other stakeholders to ensure that we do not curb abuse at the expense of our most innovative individuals, universities, and businesses. We support narrow, targeted reforms to prevent abuse that maintain the United States’ leadership in the global innovation economy.
We look forward to working with you to strike the appropriate balance, and we urge you to withdraw H.R. 9 from consideration until a narrower consensus based bill can be achieved.
