US Senate Is Finally Getting Serious About Slaying Patent Trolls

Patent reform is back in the US Senate, and it's going to be tougher for Harry Reid to get in the way this time. Seven members of the Senate Judiciary Committee—including Majority Whip John Cornyn and Chuck Schumer, the No. 3 Democrat—unveiled legislation Wednesday that would overhaul several aspects of the patent-litigation landscape and clamp down on predatory patent-troll behavior. The contents of the measure are the product of months of deliberations that began in January between Cornyn and Schumer, according to congressional aides close to the process.
