Legislation Will Enhance Competitive Edge of Entrepreneurs and Job Creators

Washington, D.C., - National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Vice President for Tax and Domestic Economic Policy Dorothy Coleman issued the following statement today in support of H.R. 1249, the America Invents Act: "The protection of intellectual property is of paramount importance to manufacturers. By ensuring that intellectual property is safeguarded, manufacturers can continue to compete in the global marketplace knowing that their products, innovations and ideas are secure.

This legislation ensures a well-funded and properly staffed U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that can process applications in a timely manner, allowing manufacturers in the U.S. to bring their cutting-edge technological breakthroughs to the marketplace first. Furthermore, this measure will provide for the transition from a 'first-to-invent' to a 'first-to-file' system, eliminating the current costs and complexities that burden our patent system and put manufacturers in America at a competitive disadvantage.

Manufacturers believe that the USPTO must have all of the available resources to ensure our patent system remains the best and most efficient in the world." The NAM is part of a coalition supporting H.R. 1249 that ran a full-page ad in Tuesday's Roll Call.

The National Association of Manufacturers is the largest manufacturing association in the United States, representing manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Manufacturing has a presence in every single congressional district providing good, high-paying jobs.
