"CompTIA commends Chairman Goodlatte on the open, bipartisan and collaborative manner in which he has approached this critical issue—and we appreciate the steps forward that this bill has taken to deter abusive patent litigation.  The economic and social costs of abusive patent litigation have become intolerable and disproportionately impact small and medium sized innovators.

"Chairman Goodlatte's Innovation Act protects end-users, and helps deter frivolous and abusive patent suits while safeguarding honest innovators.

"We look forward to supporting the Chairman's efforts, and to continuing to work with the House and Senate Judiciary Committees on additional ways to curb abusive patent litigation.  Achievement of legislation this year would be a major step forward for the advancement of innovation and our economy."
