NAR Asks for Member Action on Patent Troll Legislation

Published Friday, July 31, 2015

Did you know that in Indiana there have been 124 lawsuits filed by patent trolls?  It’s time we stopped this abuse and closed the legal loopholes that patent trolls thrive on. Stand up for Indiana REALTORS® and tell your Representative to support H.R. 9 – The Innovation Act! Click here for the Call to Action you can send your Representative right now.

Patent trolls exist solely to purchase outdated patents and use the threat of expensive lawsuits to extort money from legitimate businesses.  REALTORS® are targeted by patent trolls for simply using common business technologies like dropdown menus and search functions on websites or scan-to-email technologies found in every office scanner.  H.R. 9 – The Innovation Act is a common-sense comprehensive patent litigation reform bill that will protect Main Street businesses and REALTORS® from patent troll abuse.
