Stop Patent Trolls From Targeting Retailers | Commentary

In concert with our nationís food retailers, the FMI believes the Patent Quality Improvement Act strikes an appropriate balance between protecting commerce from meritless, aggressive litigation and promoting innovation as patents are intended. Passing this legislation should be a priority for the 113th Congress.

Erik R. Lieberman is the regulatory counsel at the Food Marketing Institute, which represents food retailers and wholesalers before Congress and the regulatory agencies.
