THIS IS HOW MUCH MONEY PATENT TROLLS HAVE DRAINED FROM THE ECONOMY SINCE DECEMBER 2013



The U.S. House of Representatives passed patent litigation reform by an overwhelming bipartisan vote in 2013, but the Senate failed to act. Now, it’s up to the new Congress to start again and finish the job.
 
Every week Congress waits, patent trolls drain another $1.5 billion from the U.S. economy by suing or threatening litigation to extract licensing fees from businesses and tech entrepreneurs. Big or small, no one is safe from patent trolls.
 
Unless Congress takes action, patent trolls will bleed another $80 billion from our economy this year. It is time to say enough is enough. Congress must shut down the patent extortion industry, and enact strong and sensible patent reform NOW.
