The "Less Familiar" Voices on Patent Reform

Last month, the U.S. Business and Industry Council Educational Foundation sent a letter to Congress opposing patent reform. Signatories to the letter included organizations such as Capitol Hill Prayer Alert, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, Minuteman Civil Defense Corps., and, last but not least, the National Federation of American Hungarians.

The staff at Wired took note of some of the groups and decided to interview them. The Wired blog provides us with this gem:

Laszlo Pasztor, the honorary chairman of the National Federation of American Hungarians, has spent the last few decades, he says, working for the "liberation of communist and oppressed countries." Last month though, Pasztor joined a somewhat different cause: opposing patent reform.

"It was in Chicago or Detroit, I can't remember," the octogenarian Pasztor said, apologizing for his failing memory in old age. The meeting, also attended by three congressmen and Senator James Inhofe (R-Oklahoma), included discussion on patent reform. "Somebody brought this up, I don't know for what reason," said Pasztor.

He heard the issues and felt the bill might harm the competitiveness of the U.S. economy. "So I gave them permission to use my name," Pasztor said.
