I have often argued that we do not need so-called patent “reform.” But I’ve had a change of heart. We absolutely need patent reform, but not the kind proposed in the Innovation Act, H.R. 9, and the PATENT Act, S. 1137. To get the real kind of reform that will encourage a strong and vibrant innovation economy, we first need a role reversal. Let me explain.
