Supreme Court Ruling Highlights Continued Need for Comprehensive Legislative Solution to Inequities in Patent Litigation System

The Coalition for Patent Fairness today issued the following statement, which may be attributed for the record to Matt Tanielian, Executive Director:

"The Supreme Court today issued a unanimous and positive ruling today in the highly anticipated CLS Bank vs. Alice Corp. case. Unfortunately, neither today’s ruling nor any single act by the court or the executive branch can do what is needed to make the business model of being a patent troll unprofitable and unattractive. Only strong, comprehensive patent litigation reform legislation will truly solve the patent troll crisis that plagues America’s innovators, startups and main street businesses. Congress must act to pass patent reform legislation and we will continue to pursue that goal."
