+ - FTC Chairwoman Speaks on Growing U.S. Patent Problem->

Submitted by ectoman
ectoman (594315) writes "In a recent policy speech, Federal Trade Commission Chairwoman Edith Ramirez indicated that the FTC might be preparing to seriously address patent abuse in the United States. Mark Bohannon, Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Global Public Policy at Red Hat, has reviewed Ramirez's remarks, calling them "some of the most direct and specific to date from a senior US Government official regarding 'harmful PAE [patent assertion entities] activities.'" Bohannon writes that the FTC's proposed roadmap for patent reform "is both ambitious and doable," and he discusses how the agency could make its potential contributions to reforms most effective. The piece arrives one week after Bohannon analyzed other patent reform efforts currently ongoing in Washington—in a piece Slashdot readers have been discussing."
