IPWatchdog recently released additional commentary on the Innovation Act. To read the article in its entirety, follow the link here. An excerpt is below.
"If the goal is to insulate small businesses from charges of patent infringement then why not actually write that into the bill so that problem is addressed? Even if the Innovation Act gets passed as written small businesses could still be sued for patent infringement. Indeed, the promise that the Innovation Act is about stopping patent litigation against small businesses is about as truthful as the promise that you could keep your own doctor, or if you like your insurance you can continue to keep it."
