Call for Action: Stop Patent Trolls

Published Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Next week the U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on H.R. 9 - The Innovation Act of 2015 which will take vital steps to protect the real estate industry from frivolous lawsuits brought by patent trolls. It is critical that you urge your Member of Congress to support this important legislation. 

Contact your Member of Congress to Stop Patent Trolls

The National Association of REALTORS® and MIBOR are supporting H.R. 9 - The Innovation Act to close loopholes in our legal system that allows patent trolls to thrive. REALTORS® are targeted by patent trolls at alarming rates for simply using common business technologies like dropdown menus and search functions on websites or scan-to-email technologies found in every office scanner. Patent trolls exist solely to purchase old patents and to use the threat of expensive lawsuits to extort money from legitimate businesses. Congress must pass common-sense comprehensive patent litigation reform to protect Main Street businesses and REALTORS® from patent troll abuse.

Contact your U.S. Representative and urge them to support H.R. 9, the Innovation Act

Thank you for your support on this important legislative issue.
