If you love invention, you must watch this movie

Congressional leaders have made it clear that patent legislation will be a top priority for early 2015.  The proposed legislation could have a devastating effect on innovation. 

We encourage you to watch a new documentary about the importance of the patent system and the risk of new patent legislation, called Inventing to Nowhere. 

The movie follows the journey of two creative and tenacious inventors who launched a small company in San Diego. The film is a joint effort by the Innovation Alliance (Qualcomm is a member) and SaveTheInventor.com. It premiered in 20 cities around the country on December 15, and is now available on YouTube. You can get involved by signing our petition asking Congress to keep our patent system strong!
