St. Louis, MO: The Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund filed an amicus brief yesterday with the U.S. Supreme Court against a judge-made requirement that an invention be in the “physical realm” in order to be patent eligible. It is filed on behalf of the petitioner in InvestPic, LLC v. SAP America, Inc.
Author and legal advisor Andy Schlafly said “We support broad patentability for inventions in this Information Age, and oppose judicial activism which creates new impediments to property rights in this field.”
EFELDF President Ed Martin added, “Phyllis Schlafly has a long history of defending patents and intellectual property. She also made sure that her organizations were actively involved in providing ‘friend of the court’ briefs to aid in many legal cases. We are proud to continue this tradition, headed by her son Andy.”
