REALTORS® Press for Relief from Patent Trolls (VIDEO)

As lawmakers on Capitol Hill consider patent-reform legislation, the National Association of REALTORS® has released a video highlighting the urgent need for action to protect real estate and other types of professionals from patent trolls—entities that purchase patents, then use vaguely worded claims to demand licensing fees or threaten legal action. NAR is playing a key role in the effort to reform the U.S. patent litigation system and is a member of the recently formed United for Patent Reform coalition.
