America's travel leaders support Patent Reform Bill

The U.S. Travel Association recently welcomed the introduction of the Innovation Act of 2013, H.R. 3309, by Robert Goodlatte, Chairman, House Judiciary Committee as stated by a press release.

Roger Dow, President and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association, said,"For too long, travel has been among the industries subjected to wasteful, baseless technology infringement lawsuits that undermine businesses' productivity and ability to create jobs.Travel is America's No. 1 services export and a leading driver of the U.S. economic recovery, but unscrupulous legal tactics by a few greedy individuals have prevented the industry from performing at its full potential."

The travel community thanked Chairman Goodlatte and his colleagues, including Reps. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.), Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), Howard Coble (R-N.C.), Peter Defazio (D-Ore.), Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.), Blake Farenthold (R-Texas), George Holding (R-N.C.), Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), Tom Marino (R-Pa.)and Lamar Smith (R-Texas),for their leadership in pursuing the much-needed reform.
