Ramping up for the 2009+ patent reform efforts, the Coalition for Patent Fairness (CPF) has revamped its website and refocused its message on patent reform, claiming a more economic-based rationale for supporting reform:
"Deficiencies in our patent system are holding our economy back by dampening innovation and job creation. Congress needs to pass a bipartisan and comprehensive patent reform bill to modernize and reduce uncertainty in the current system by addressing the backlog of patent applications in the patent office, ensuring only proper patents are being granted, and creating an environment where small, medium and large companies can innovate and create jobs. Our revised website will communicate that message and serve as a source of information for policy makers, business leaders, consumers and journalists interested in patent reform."
Also the CPF has launched a blog titled "Better Mouse Trap," dedicated to "following the debate over patent reform in the 111th Congress." The blog claims to "find the latest news and information and the latest reports of activities of the Coalition for Patent Fairness – a group of small, medium and large businesses and trade associations dedicated to supporting innovation and job creation through the modernization and reform of the US patent system."
