"IBM strongly supports the Patent Transparency and Improvements Act of 2013. This important legislation would curb abusive practices in our patent litigation system while also protecting innovations that keep the United States competitive and spur economic growth."
"IBM thanks Senator Leahy for his leadership in taking a balanced and measured approach to patent reform. We look forward to working with him and other Members of Congress to enact legislation that curbs abuses in patent litigation while preserving the strong protections that make the U.S. patent system the envy of the world."
- Tim Sheehy, Vice President of Technology Policy, IBM Governmental Programs
