OMA joins National Effort to Oppose “March-In” Federal IP Seizure


This week, the OMA joined the National Association of Manufacturers and a coalition of business groups to oppose the Biden administration’s proposed March-in Rights rule that would allow the federal government to seize patents from manufacturers for products it deems too expensive. The coalition letter ardently condemns the move as a broad-based violation of property rights that would stifle U.S. research & innovation, while deterring critical investment in the nation’s economy. The OMA issued comments in opposition last February upon following the rule’s initial introduction. 6/12/2024
