Leahy Bill to Reemerge Shortly
Posted By Scott A. McKeown On 17 March 2014 @ 7:15 In Patent Law Reform | Comments Disabled
Senator Leahy will dust off his proposed bill S. 1720 entitled Patent Transparency and Improvements Act of 2013 next week. The Bill has been the subject of fairly intense lobbying over the past few months, stalling the otherwise fast track effort. With the mark-up scheduled for Senate Judiciary Committee consideration on March 27th , it is expected that debate on the revised bill will be pushed for early/mid April.
It will be interesting to see the mark-ups and differences between the initial version of the Bill and its House counterpart (Goodlatte bill ) — a veritable patent lobby report card.
