Innovation depends on solid patent rights and intellectual property. The U.S. was once a world leader in securing those rights, enabling centuries of advancement from Edison’s light bulb to today’s mobile technology. Unfortunately, America’s “gold standard” patent system has been replaced. Today, China and Europe secure more reliable and effective patent rights and are reaping the benefits.
Patent systems drive economic, military, and medical progress, and the loss of reliable and effective patent rights threatens America’s economic growth and national security.
Join us to learn about the legal and policy developments that weakened the U.S. patent system and why restoring it should be a top priority.
