House expected to pass Patent Reform Act of 2007 todaySeptember 7, 2007

That House version of the Patent Reform Act of 2007 (H.R. 1908) is expected to be considered and passed today. There have been several modifications to the bill since it was first introduced, so even if the Senate also passes it, there likely will be many differences between the House and Senate versions that will have to be worked out before it could be sent to the President for signature. The Senate is not expected to consider the measure until October, and rumors indicate that the bill will likely not pass the Senate unless at least the controversial damages apportionment provision is removed.

A House vote is expected by 3:00 PM Eastern time.
