Main Street Patent Coalition


The Main Street Patent Coalition is a national, non-partisan coalition of organizations dedicated to stopping patent abuse from trolls by encouraging Congress to pass comprehensive, common sense patent reform legislation – now. The Coalition represents businesses in every community in America – retail, restaurants, hotels, travel, grocers and more – that are being attached mercilessly by extortionist patent trolls. The Main Street Patent Coalition calls on Congress to eliminate trolls’ ability to hide behind shell corporations, disarm trolls by improving patent quality, make it easier to punish trolls that send fraudulent demand letters, protect end users, and make trolls pay when they sue companies frivolously.

Congrats to the 2018 IFA Major Award winners for their dedication to advancing the franchise community. Cheer them...
