Verona, PA -- Nadine Maenza, Executive Director of Patriot Voices, issued the following statement regarding S. 1137, the PATENT Act:
“Patriot Voices opposes S. 1137 because it hurts innovation and harms the American worker. This bill ultimately weakens the ability of American inventors to protect their discoveries, and it invites unfair competitive practices putting us at a disadvantage in the global marketplace. While there are some benefits of the PATENT Act like lowering licensing costs, they come at too large a price. The bottom line is S. 1137 must be defeated.”
