InterDigital CEO: Senator Coons’ Stronger Act “Works to Strengthen American Innovation”

/EIN News/ -- WILMINGTON, Del., June 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- William J. Merritt, President and CEO of mobile technology research and development company InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ:IDCC), today reacted to the new bipartisan STRONGER Patents Act authored by Senator Chris Coons (D-Del.) and introduced with Senators Tom Cotton (R- Ark.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), and Mazie Hirono (D-Haw.):

“This bill comes at a time when other countries have moved ahead of the U.S. in terms of intellectual property. Until this year, the U.S. patent system was ranked first worldwide by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce; it is now ranked tenth. The STRONGER bill helps pave the way for America to once again have the top patent system, improving our global competitiveness and providing a level playing field for small businesses and startups to compete with large incumbents. Senator Coons has proven himself to be a leader in protecting innovation, and we fully support his efforts to strengthen American industry and competitiveness through this bill.”
