APLU Statement on Introduction of STRONG Patents Act of 2015

March 3, 2015

President Peter McPherson today released the following statement regarding the introduction of the STRONG Patents Act of 2015:

“The STRONG Patents Act of 2015 is a straightforward bill that would effectively crack down on the abusive practices of so-called patent trolls without weakening the U.S. patent system.  Universities rely on a strong patent system to ensure that research discoveries can be transitioned to private sector entities, which can scale-up and develop marketable products that improve quality of life and fuel the economy.  This measure would help ensure the strength of this technology transfer process, which significantly contributes to our nation’s leadership in science and technology.”
