SUMMARY OF THE TARGETING ROGUE AND OPAQUE LETTERS ACT (TROL ACT)

Recently, the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade began consideration of a bill entitled "The Targeting Rogue and Opaque Letters Act of 2014" ("TROL Act"). The bill is the latest effort in patent reform legislation, and is intended to address the practice of sending fraudulent or deceptive patent demand letters. Generally, the bill would provide the Federal Trade Commission with authority to bring actions against those sending such letters. The bill would also provide a state Attorney General with the power to bring actions under this statute on behalf of residents of the state.
