Summary:
The company spent $280,000 in the second half of 2007 to lobby Congress, according to a disclosure form posted online Feb. 15 by the Senate's public records office. [...] The Toronto-based company lobbied on legislation intended to improve patent quality and reduce litigation. Critics charge the bills would weaken patent protections. The House approved patent reform legislation last year, but it's pending in the Senate.
