Next Tuesday the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing entitled Protecting Small Businesses and Promoting Innovation by Limiting Patent Troll Abuse. The 10 AM hearing will be webcast [2]. A witness list is not yet available. The hearing will focus issues for possible mark up so that the Senate Bill can be fast tracked in early 2014. The Senate effort is expected to track the Goodlatte bill [3] to avoid, or significantly minimize issues for conference.
