Washington – The Supreme Court heard oral arguments today about frivolous patent litigation in order to weigh in on when the loser should have to pay the legal fees of the winner.
The Computer & Communications Industry Association has advocated for major patent reform for more than a decade. The following can be attributed to CCIA President & CEO Ed Black:
“While we hope the Supreme Court can bring clarity on the specific issues before it, the arguments were another sign that the patent system is in serious need of reform. This question of how frivolous a patent suit can be before the loser must pay the winner’s fees is important, but just one of many issues that need to be addressed, and shows why we need patent reform legislation.”
