Hotel Industry Praises Committee Passage of Patent Troll Reform Bill

Published on : Friday, November 22, 2013

AH&LAThe American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA), the sole national association representing all segments of the 1.8 million-employee U.S. lodging industry, commends the House Judiciary Committee on today’s passage of The Innovation Act (H.R. 3309) on a strong bipartisan vote of 33-5 and issued the following statement:

 

“With committee passage of this bill, the House of Representatives moves one step closer towards meaningful patent reform and protection from the predatory, frivolous lawsuits filed by patent trolls, often against small hotels that don’t have the resources to wage expensive legal battles,” said Katherine Lugar, AH&LA president/CEO.  “We thank Chairman Goodlatte for his thoughtful leadership in guiding his bill through the committee process.  The lodging industry now looks forward to working with the full House of Representatives in crafting a final bill that puts an end to a practice that costs the economy $80 billion each year.”
