Patent Reform Update: Reactions To House Vote on Patent Reform

The House voted to move ahead with debate on patent reform, but a spokeswoman for Majority Leader Eric Cantor,R-Va., said a final vote is now expected on Friday. The latest delay is a result of a House Rules Committee decision that an end to fee diversion should not be included in patent reform.  This latest change has caused many industry groups who supported the bill to now change their position.  What does this mean for the future of patent reform?  Here is what the patent community is saying about these latest turn of events….
