In the patent litigation reform debate, note something peculiar about opponents' arguments. Namely, they routinely include among their claims that patent litigation reform legislation before Congress would somehow upend America's patent system or intellectual property (IP) rights generally. The reason for that is obvious. Opponents cannot with a straight face argue that our judicial system isn't in desperate need of litigation reform, particularly to conservative and libertarian audiences. Consequently, they resort to cursory claims that litigation reform would weaken patents and undermine America's standing as the most inventive nation in human history.
