Leahy introduces bill to protect businesses from patent trolls

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy has introduced legislation to protect businesses from patent trolls.

The so-called trolls buy patents and then sue companies for infringement. They often target small businesses who agree to pay settlement fees to avoid costly legal battles.

Leahy's bill aims to prevent frivolous infringement demands and gives businesses more resources to defend themselves.
