Spherix Incorporated (NASDAQ: SPEX) shares doubled on Tuesday after the U.S. Senate and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy removed a patent reform bill from the committee's calendar due to a lack of bipartisan support. According to Spherix's press release, Leahy, a Democrat, said many of the proposals in the bill would place too much of a burden on "legitimate patent holders who employ thousands of Americans.” "The removal of this bill from the Senate Judiciary Committee schedule should remove some of the uncertainty which has been clouding our industry," said Spherix CEO Anthony Hayes. "Spherix is committed to responsibly protecting the patents it owns, and we remain eager to work with companies large and small to reach fair agreements."

Spherix Incorporated operates as an intellectual property company that owns patented and unpatented intellectual properties. The company owns approximately 330 patents and patent applications.
