Patent Reform Touches DNC in Denver

From the "Tech Daily Dose" for Congressional Daily:

Rep.

A proposal that would curb judicial "venue-shopping" for favorable courts is critical as is language to address patent abuses, she said. "How do you legally set a framework that prevents abuses and allows for a vigorous system that protects intellectual property?" Lofgren asked aloud. "It's not easy to come up with solutions."
