Reza Mollaaghababa Quoted in Law360 Article, 'Attys Cheer Iancu Patent Troll Speech, Tech Groups Dismayed'

Reza Mollaaghababa, Ph.D., a partner in the Intellectual Property Department of Pepper Hamilton, was quoted in the October 22, 2018 Law360 article, "Attys Cheer Iancu Patent Troll Speech, Tech Groups Dismayed." The article discusses U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Director Andrei Iancu’s speech to the Eastern District of Texas Bar Association on October 18 arguing that decrying patent trolls weakens the patent system.

Reza Mollaaghababa of Pepper Hamilton LLP said that he found Iancu's speech "very heartening" in its call for striking a balance in the wake of trends that have worked against patent owners.

"It’s really an uphill battle for patent owners and to the extent the proceedings can be made more equitable, it would go a long way to making the system more fair and still have the ability to weed out bad patents," he said.
