Summary:
The EFF today pointed out that the proposed Patent Reform Act of 2007 (which EFF generally supports) "would only permit non-profit organizations like EFF to question the validity of issued patents within twelve months of issuance". The EFF argues, that this is not enough time to evaluate the impact of patents, and that the public's "right to defend itself against patents that should never have been granted" is threatened.
