How Congress can ensure the patent system protects inventors and entrepreneurs
Congress can, and should, take at least four steps in restoring the health and vitality of our patent system: First, Congress should ensure that the patent grant is meaningful and valuable in the first instance. Second, Congress should reaffirm the exclusive nature of the patent grant. Third, Congress should clarify, and perhaps legislatively overrule, the cases addressing patent eligible subject matter, Alice, Mayo, and Myriad. Fourth, and finally, Congress should tread extremely carefully in the realm of so-called patent litigation reform.
