LATEST PROJECTS

“True liberty, by protecting the exertions of talents and industry, and securing to them their justly acquired fruits, tends more powerfully than any other cause to augment the mass of national wealth.”

— Alexander Hamilton, Defense of the Funding System

LETTER
Rx Market Hearing

Qualifying innovations for FTC examination or enforcement would discourage developing drugs for indications with unmet medical needs, including cancers.

COMMENT LETTER
Protecting Bayh-Dole

Bayh-Dole protects innovation and allows it to flourish, without the possibility of government expropriation of IP. March-in is not intended as a price control mechanism.

COALITION LETTER
Scrap the Rx Excise Tax

The IRA's 95% excise tax on medicines will be punitive, unworkable, and ultimately indefensible.

STATEMENT
Report on Patent Litigation

Marcum's new study of patent litigation shows that civil litigation now holds less promise of delivering justice to inventors and patent owners.

COALITION LETTER
Anti-USITC Bill

H.R. 3535 adds hurdles to the U.S. International Trade Commission’s ability to keep IP-infringing products out, enabling infringers to keep supply chains in China.

STATEMENT
RSC FY25 Budget

The Republican Study Committee budget for FY25 addresses several of CPR’s priorities. RSC halts federal land grabs. It repeals Obama-Biden WOTUS regulatory takings. It kills the Death Tax.

LETTER
RALIA

The Restoring America’s Leadership in Innovation Act would strengthen private intellectual property rights. RALIA would reverse the antipatent onslaught of recent years.

STATEMENT
RSC China IP measures

CPR commends the Countering Communist China Act for protecting property rights and increasing our vigilance, shoring up economic and national security against malign actors.

LETTER
Sunset Act

The Sunset Act reins in the Administrative State's rules, regulations, and guidance. They would no longer remain in force in perpetuity.

GRAPHIC
What They’re Saying

These excerpt public comments that oppose the Biden draft guidance for Bayh-Dole march-in to forcibly relicense patents if an agency disagrees with the product price.

COALITION LETTER
March-in Framework

The proposed guidance would endanger American economic competitiveness, inhibit innovation, impede public private partnerships, and harm U.S. technological leadership in cutting-edge sectors.

COMMENT LETTER
Price-Based March-In

NIST proposes the most destructive policy: Injecting pricing into Bayh-Dole march-in, which has never been used and lacks statutory grounds for product price. NIST must withdraw it.

COALITION LETTER
House Death Tax Repeal Bill

CPR commends Reps. Randy Feenstra (R-IA) and Sanford Bishop (D-GA) on the House Death Tax Repeal Act. It has over 160 original cosponsors, and the supporting coalition letter has nearly 160 signers.

COMMENT LETTER
WIPO’s Red Tape on Patenting

WIPO seeks to impose new burdens on inventors. It breaks with decades of precedent, causes legal uncertainties, and undermines innovation.

COALITION LETTER
Restore Progrowth Tax Incentives

Congress should encourage more investment in the American economy, including bonus depreciation, R&D deductions and EBITDA depreciation.

LETTER
Defense of Property Rights Act

H.R. 6758 enables property owners to hold the federal government accountable for takings. Its more efficient, uniform process secures Fifth Amendment rights.
