The White House has been working on protecting American innovation by taking a closer look at patent trolling. Since June, the White House has been putting together a list of executive actions. They were released on Thursday. Take note that no legislation has been developed at this point. However, the president did ask Congress to develop robust patent trolling legislation this year.
Among the actions suggested are:
Making Patents Clear
Protecting Main Street from Abuse
Strengthening Exclusion Order Enforcement
Innovation for Global Development
You can see the full list of executive actions and more in-depth definitions by visiting the
White House webpage. The Alabama legislature is considering a bill on patent trolling this session.
