15 different amendments proposed to Senate version of Patent Reform Act of 2007March 14, 2008

The Patent Reform Act of 2007 (S.1145) keeps plodding along in the Senate. Just over a month after the Senate Judiciary Committee released its report on the bill, there have now been 15 amendments circulated for possible consideration when the full Senate takes up the bill, with the potential for more to come before the bill is actually considered. The Senate is expected to address the bill sometime in the coming months.

The number of amendments, along with the "compromise" offer on the damages provision circulated last week, shows that there may be many changes between now and when the bill passes, if it passes at all.

Thanks to the Intellectual Property Owners Association (IPO) for providing links to the proposed amendments. Click below for links to the various amendments.
