Rep. Smith Raises Possibility Of Limited Patent Reform

February 11, 2011

While reiterating support for a bill that "enhances patent quality, discourages frivolous litigation, harmonizes international patent principles, and enforces core rights," House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, urged lawmakers to focus on "doable, practical, and ultimately achievable patent reform," National Journal Daily reported.

Smith made his comments as the House Subcommittee on Intellectual Property, Competition, and the Internet heard testimony from industry and judicial experts Friday.

"Politics is the art of the possible," he said. "I've supported stronger language on such issues as apportionment of damages, willful infringement, and venue. But we've reached a point where no one member, industry, company, trade association, or advocacy group is going to be completely happy with the outcome."
