Protect Competition and Keep Auto Parts Affordable
Petition Background (Preamble):
Over the past several years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of design patents on collision repair parts obtained by the major car companies. Consumers, the alternative collision parts industry, the automotive repair industry and insurers are concerned that car companies are now using design patents, not for the important and legitimate protection of the overall design of their vehicles, but to prevent competition when it comes to getting the parts consumers need to repair our vehicles.
Please join the Quality Parts Coalition, consumers, seniors and others in encouraging our members of Congress to protect competition in the automotive collision parts industry and keep auto parts affordable.

And it is good for the U.S. economy because the alternative collision parts industry employs tens of thousands of American workers in cities and small towns across the country in all 50 states.
The interests of consumers, businesses and the economy are best served by protecting competition in the automotive parts industry.
