Is the False Marking Troll's Demise Imminent? Senate is Poised to Pass Patent Reform Legislation "in the Coming Days"
Among many other changes, the comprehensive reform package will moot the vast majority of currently pending false marking suits because they are brought by plaintiffs who will be ineligible to enforce the new law, i.e., non-competitors (dubbed "trolls" by the Federal Circuit).
The Senate appears likely to pass the measures shortly.
CNBC characterized the status of the bill as follows: "The Senate has rejected a challenge to the key component of legislation to overhaul the patent system, paving the way for passage in the coming days." http://www.cnbc.com/id/41890588 (emphasis added).
