This week the Computer & Communications Industry Association has sent letters thanking two senators for their patent reform initiatives. CCIA applauded Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, for his introduction of the Patent Abuse Reduction Act of 2013, and CCIA praised Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., for his introduction of the Patent Quality Improvement Act of 2013.
