House passes anti-patent troll bill

The House of Representatives yesterday passed the Innovation Act, a Google-backed bill with the intention of targeting so-called “patent trolls”. The bill passed on a 325-91 vote, with several amendments proposed to strip several of its functions collectively defeated.

The Innovation Act is meant to support the patent system as it is, but targets the bulk filers who have been making headlines recently. With issues like scanning and emailing a document being reported to the Patent Office, there has been a cry for a crack-down on these trolls. With these move, less trolls have the chance to create costly patent lawsuits.
