Hayden W. Gregory is legislative consultant for the ABA Section of Intellectual Property Law in Washington, D.C.
The 113th Congress is well past its mid-point, and as it moves toward the home stretch, the number one intellectual property related issue remains, as it has been from the beginning, abusive patent enforcement practices by so-called patent trolls or patent assertion entities (PAEs). These same issues are also receiving significant attention in the other two branches of government.
