Patent Troll Reform Vetoed by Governor Baker – onto next legislative session…

As many of you know by now, Governor Baker vetoed the legislation – bill S.2622 – that would have ensured state protection in MA against patent trolls.  The bill had passed both the House and the Senate.

While I am very disappointed by the Governor’s decision, and believe it was unfairly influenced by the lobbying of large companies that found the legislation to be mildly inconvenient, we are not done fighting.

Please see this Letter to the Editor today in The Boston Globe by Eric Lesser, Eric Paley & Shirley Paley.  Their leadership and persistence on this issue is truly remarkable.

It is my understanding that Senator Lesser intends to move forward with this Bill again during the next legislative session, and many believe there are reasonable parameters in which the Governor would support this reform.
