The patent system is rife with abuse by patent trolls and patent assertion entities. Reform is desperately needed. Unfortunately, some seek to change critical laws regarding Inter Parties Review (“IPR”), an important process by which any company, regardless of its size, can affordably challenge the validity of bad patents—patents of such poor quality that they never should have issued in the first place. The proposed changes would severely weaken, if not cripple, the existing IPR process. We cannot allow such an important tool to be destroyed or even weakened, especially under the cover of patent reform.
