Showing that Patent Reform has become as polarizing as major politics these days, supporters for each camp sent their respective support letters to the Senate.

Supporters of patent reform and the Coalition for Patent Fairness sent a letter signed by a total of 128 companies and associations from across the U.S. in support of the Patent Reform Act of 2007 (S. 1145).

Supporters of patent reform and the Coalition for Patent Fairness, an alliance of large and small businesses and associations in the technology, financial services, energy, chemical, manufacturing and media industries, expressed strong support for S. 1145 claiming the bill will stimulate American innovation, growth and competitiveness by restoring balance to our patent system. In the end, it will benefit all American workers and American consumers.

On the other side, more than 430 organizations — representing American innovation from all 50 states and the District of Columbia in fields including agriculture, alternative energy, biotechnology, chemicals, computer hardware, computer software, computer networking, cosmetics, entertainment, financial services, food/beverage, health care, heavy industry, life sciences, manufacturing, medical devices, material science, nanotechnology, optics, security, semiconductors, space systems, startup incubation, telecommunications, venture capital, and internet-based businesses — signed a letter to raise their concerns regarding S. 1145, The Patent Reform Act of 2007.
