Video: Free Market and Conservative Groups Speak Out for STRONGER Patents Print
By Jeff Mazzella
Thursday, March 22 2018

In a video released today by the Center for Individual Freedom (CFIF), the leaders of numerous free market and conservative organizations speak out in strong support of the STRONGER Patents Act, legislation that will help provide relief and support to American creators and innovators by restoring the historic strength of the hobbling U.S. patent system.

The release of the video coincides with this week’s introduction of the "Support Technology & Research for Our Nation's Growth and Economic Resilience Patent Act” – or STRONGER Patents Act of 2018 (H.R. 5340) – sponsored by Representatives Steve Stivers (R-OH) and Bill Foster (D-IL) in the U.S. House of Representatives. 

Last month, CFIF led a coalition of nearly two dozen conservative and free market organizations on a letter urging support of the U.S. Senate version of the STRONGER Patents Act (S.1390).

Leaders of the following organizations appear in the video stressing support for STRONGER Patents:  Center for Individual Freedom, Taxpayers Protection Alliance, Institute for Policy Innovation, American Commitment, Frontiers of Freedom, Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council, ALEC Action, Conservatives for Property Rights and Tea Party Patriots.
