When the Patent Reform Act of 2007 (S. 1145) soon reaches the Senate floor, Congress will be presented with a significant opportunity to affirm the goals the Framers envisioned for the patent system. Those goals -- to spur innovation by rewarding inventors and to disseminate pioneering knowledge to facilitate and further expand the marketplace of ideas -- have been thwarted in recent years by a system that has failed to keep pace with the rapid evolution of the economy and the nature of innovation. This landmark reform measure will restore the balance the Framers intended for the patent system.
