STRONGER Patents Act of 2017 Protects Innovators, Inventors, and Constitutional Patent System 

June 21, 2017

WASHINGTON DC — Today, the American Conservative Union (ACU) announced its support for the STRONGER Patents Act of 2017. The measure, sponsored by Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Senator Chris Coons (D-Conn.), protects American innovators, creators, and inventors by strengthening our constitutionally-protected patent system.  The STRONGER Patents Act would implement commonsense modernization measures that allow our patent system to keep up with rapidly changing technologies that impact the lives of all Americans.

The bill includes a number of components that will positively impact intellectual property rights:

Congress remains a key player in making sure that intellectual property rights are strengthened and preserved so that IP continues to be a critical cornerstone of our economic well-being. The STRONGER Patents Act helps to achieve that goal.

“Our founders understood that real progress for future generations of Americans would only be possible if creativity and innovation were protected, encouraged, and allowed to thrive in a free-market atmosphere,” said ACU’s Dan Schneider. “The STRONGER Patents Act incorporates a limited government approach to strengthen our patent system, which will lead to economic opportunity. It will also discourage bad actors, foreign and domestic, from illegally benefitting from someone else’s hard work.”

ACU urges all members of the Senate to vote YES on the STRONGER Patents Act of 2017.
