White House Releases Serious Patent Reform Proposals

Today the White House released "Fact Sheet: White House Task Force on High-Tech Patent Issues."  This includes some serious patent reform proposals, some by executive order and some by proposed legislation.  The Fact Sheet was accompanied by a report about the current problems with the patent system.

EFF's blog post about this important development is here.

UPDATE: Here's a cute animated GIF of a patent troll by the White House.   Techdirt has two stories about this development.  Here is Patently-O's post.
