ACU Says NO to “Comprehensive Patent Reform”

July 24, 2015



As part of ACU’s long-term strategy to stand up against those who seek to take advantage of American inventors, we are pleased to continue our online campaign designed to educate Americans about the issue.

Liberals have always been hostile to property rights of any kind, and as a result President Obama and his allies in Congress, and his corporate allies who would benefit from weaker protections have been pushing for a government-led patent overhaul. ACU seeks to counter the reckless utopian liberal dream of a patent-free society by educating our members and conservative activists across America of the patent protections written into our U.S. Constitution that have made America an unrivaled leader in global innovation.
