Recent concerns over alleged patent system abuse by non-innovating, non-practicing patent assertion entities have led to many patent reform proposals. This is the second article in a three-part series addressing some of these proposals. In Part I of this series, we started with the understanding that the U.S. patent system is a great system for innovation that, like all thriving systems, needs occasional tending and improvement.  We examined a proposal to establish uniform procedural rules for patent infringement cases. In this article, we consider proposals that seek to protect “end users”—businesses that simply buy and use an off-the-shelf product.
