The National Retail Federation had welcoming words for the House Judiciary Committee’s markup of H.R. 9, the Innovation Act:
“The nation’s retailers welcome the broad, bipartisan vote for patent litigation reform," said NRF VP Beth Provenzano. "We appreciate Chairman Goodlatte’s leadership on this critically-important issue."
The House Judiciary Committee made a sweeping vote of 24-8 on Thursday to pass the Innovation Act, a major piece of patent reform legislation.
