    While this bill does several useful things, and coordinates our patent policy with that of the rest of the world, as required by treaty, it has a major flaw.

    It skews the patent law in favor of the large corporations, and reduces the likelihood and size of infringement actions. Thus there will be little incentive for a major corporation to pay attention to a patent held by a smaller entity or individual. This will stifle the inventiveness that has made our country great – and has come primarily from individual inventors and small businesses.

    How is this one different from S.1145? The EFF seems to be in support of that one and they seem to be for individuals and innovation… Though they also have reservations about it and see it more as just a step in the right direction.
