Recently, Senator Christopher Coons (D-Del) and a bipartisan group of other senators introduced the STRONGER Patents Act of 2017. The STRONGER Patents Act of 2017 is the first piece of general patent-related legislation introduced in the 115th Congress. It is designed to make post-issuance proceedings before the PTAB more fair and efficient, and to address emerging concerns about these proceedings and the continual weakening of patent rights by the courts.
