San Francisco Chronicle - "Silicon Valley: Patent reform passed by Senate"

March 9, 2011 - Following the Senate's vote in favor of the Patent Reform Act of 2011, the San Francisco Chronicle interviewed Alexander Poltorak, GPC's Chairman and CEO as well as the Founder and Chairman of American Innovators for Patent Reform (AIPR).

In the following excerpt from "Silicon Valley: Patent reform passed by Senate", Dr. Poltorak explains the silver lining in the bill's passage:

"Alex Poltorak, founder and chief executive of the General Patent Corp., which helps small inventors enforce patents, predicted that the House, now with a number of Tea Party conservatives, will 'be much more attuned to the voices of small guys out there who are going to tell them how incredibly detrimental this is to U.S. innovation.'"
