Memo to Thomas Massie: Even Hobbits are Corruptible

This past Wednesday, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) joined Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) on Google Hangouts for a discussion on their bipartisan opposition to the Innovation Act, the patent reform bill currently wending its way through Congress. The discussion was moderated by Gene Quinn, founder of the pro-patent troll website IPWatchdog, and also joined by Louis Foreman of Edison Nation, a front group for the biotech industry. The irony that the event was taking place thanks to an invention by Google, one of the foremost supporters of patent reform, appeared to be lost on the panelists, as did the irony in naming a pro-patent organization for Thomas Edison, whose approach to intellectual property was… loose. However, a few more direct lines of attack were anticipated by the panelists, particularly by Massie.
