Copyrights and Patents

Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution states that Congress shall have the power:

"to promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing copyright and patent protection for authors and inventors.”

We oppose the unconstitutional transfer​​ of authority over copyright and patent policy from Congress to other agencies, domestic or foreign. ​​ We favor more vigorous efforts in both domestic and foreign markets to protect the interests of owners in their copyrights and patents.
