Arlington, VA - The National Grocers Association (NGA) Vice President of Public Affairs, Greg Ferrara made the following statement today commending the U.S. House for the passage of the Innovation Act of 2013 (H.R. 3309), a bipartisan patent reform bill aimed at curbing abusive patent trolls, which passed on an overwhelming majority vote of 325-91.
"NGA appreciates Chairman Goodlatte (R-VA) and the House Judiciary Committee for leading the charge in the U.S. House, and ultimately passing legislation that makes great strides towards reforming our broken patent system. NGA looks forward to continuing its work with Congress and the retail community to strengthen protections for end users, especially as it relates to protection from frivolous litigation and abusive demand letters."
As the representative of a $131 billion dollar independent channel of the supermarket industry, NGA remains committed to working with both Chambers to protect grocers from erroneous patent abuse, and urges the U.S. Senate to swiftly pass this important legislation.
