This October, High Tech Inventors Alliance submitted comments to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the Office's study on the current state of patent eligibility jurisprudence. The comments emphasized that claims that the reduced availability of patents for software and business methods threatens U.S. innovation and economic growth are unfounded, and that stakeholder claims vastly exaggerate impact on the ability to obtain patents. Overall, HTIA and its members believe that the Supreme Court’s eligibility decisions and the current patent eligibility jurisprudence more generally are consistent with the fundamental purpose of the patent system and provide substantial benefits to innovation and economic efficiency.
