Salesforce.com Statement In Support Of The Innovation Act Of 2013





SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM), the world's #1 CRM platform, today issued the following statement in support of the Innovation Act of 2013:

"We're very pleased with the passage of the Innovation Act and the strong bipartisan support for the bill in the U.S. House of Representatives. We applaud Chairman Goodlatte, Minority Leader Pelosi, Majority Leader Cantor and the White House for their leadership on this important issue. The technology industry has been plagued by baseless and coercive lawsuits by patent trolls for far too long. Today, patent trolls not only target technology companies with these lawsuits, they target the users of technology, including hotels, restaurants, clothing companies and charities. Defendants often settle these lawsuits in an effort to avoid the multi-million dollar cost of litigation," said Burke Norton, chief legal officer,  salesforce.com.

"The Innovation Act is a major step forward in curbing misuse of our legal system by patent trolls. If enacted, it will strongly discourage the filing of frivolous lawsuits against entrepreneurs, innovative companies and their customers–lawsuits that take an enormous toll on economic growth," Norton added. "This legislation will strongly encourage innovation and job creation, and the overwhelming bipartisan support for the bill demonstrates that Congress understands that. We now look forward to the Senate advancing this important cause."
