April 10, 2015 – Video of the February 11th event, “Patent Reform and the 114th Congress: What does the Evidence Show?” is now available on the TPI website.
Patent reform is high on the agenda for Congress. Competing bills introduced this year take different approaches to improving the patent litigation system. Will these proposals, ranging from heightened pleading standards to changing the standard for fee shifting, strengthen or weaken the patent system? What will be the effect on innovation? Panelists at “Patent Reform and the 114th Congress: What does the Evidence Show?” discussed conflicting data and research.
Panel participants were:
Eli Dourado, Research Fellow and Director of Technology Policy Program, Mercatus Center, George Mason University
John Duffy, Samuel H. McCoy II Professor of Law, University of Virginia School of Law
Stuart Graham, Associate Professor of Strategic Management, Scheller College of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology and former Chief Economist, U.S. Patent and Trademark Office
