Our Position

We Believe
Patents Matter

For more than 200 years, the U.S. patent system has empowered U.S.-based inventors, entrepreneurs, startups, and universities to lead the world in innovation and economic prosperity.

We Support Efforts to Strengthen the U.S. Patent System

We support legislative efforts such as the STRONGER Patents Act, which would strengthen our patent system by protecting the property rights of patent owners, strengthening the process for getting rid of bad patents, and reducing abusive and frivolous litigation.


Before the adoption of the United States Constitution, any man might instantly use what another had invented; so that the inventor had no special advantage from his own invention. The patent system changed this; secured to the inventor, for a limited time, the exclusive use of his invention; and thereby added the fuel of interest to the fire of genius, in the discovery and production of new and useful things.
— Abraham Lincoln, the first and only U.S. President to hold a patent
