‘Industry funding of university research’

‘Industry funding of university research is an important component of U.S. academic research’

Partners in crime?

That is what we gathered. It explains why certain large universities support and promote patent legislation that favors large infringers (thieves) and makes it easier for them to rob and crush their small competitors. Those universities do what those large infringers tell them to.

Take a look at the Board for this org:

https://itif.org/people/board

Inventors will tell you it is a collection of large multinational serial infringers and their public relations firms and other service providers -their lobbyists. Here you don’t have to lift the rock to find shadowy figures. We believe they are just another large infringer propaganda machine whose goal is to dupe Congress into legalizing theft of our inventions.

As we say, don’t believe the lies of thieves. Just because they call it reform doesn’t mean it is.

‘without any true ability to commercialize’

http://www.ipwatchdog.com/2018/01/03/looking-back-five-years-with-ipwatchdog/id=91782/

‘Today, the true beneficiaries of innovation seem to be those well-entrenched interests who can copy without great fear of reprisal, leaving the actual inventors without any true ability to commercialize and profit from their intellectual property. ‘

You almost hit the nail on the head. Not only do they not have ‘great fear’, they have NO fear. From our prior article we only win about 3% of the time in the courts through appeal, thanks to disastrous  and unjust laws like the America Invents Act. They should have called it the America STOPS Inventing Act because that has been the result. Then there are monstrously bad court decisions like Alice, eBay and others which have in affect legalized theft of small competitor inventions. And even when we do win the artificially deflated  damages are a trifle for large infringers. Plus, we can’t get injunctions to stop the thief. Large infringers have nothing to fear…and don’t they know it! These are some of the reasons why they now loot us at will. America is in a state of commercial anarchy. Why do Congress and the courts allow this perpetual and flagrant grand theft to continue? Why are they so soft on crime? Why!

Today for inventors and other small businesses it is far too hard, slow and expensive for us to get, keep and enforce patents for our inventions. That is why our  applications and patents have collapsed to only about 10% of their historical shares, if not less and still falling. For us the patent system is now a sport of thieves. We have been ‘reformed’ to death by our large infringers. It never was their intent to fix the patent system, but rather to destroy or disable it and thereby make it easy for them to rob and crush their small competitors. Whenever we have to fight to get, keep or assert our patents we go out of business.

‘Everyone in the industry knows’

http://www.ipwatchdog.com/2015/11/30/bullied-patent-owner-more-widespread-patent-troll/id=63532/

‘Everyone in the industry knows that there are bad acting patent owners.’

To state there are without proof is mere accusation, not fact. For example, we are aware of none unless you are including large infringers who own patents AND willfully and flagrantly infringe the patents (steal the inventions) of their small competitors to rob and crush them. On the balance they are far more often defendants in patent suits than plaintiffs. Often times neither they nor anyone else use theirs. Certainly, those are ‘bad’ acts by some patent owners. But there are far more than a handful of them as any seasoned inventor who has been through the patent wars will tell you. Those ‘bad’ acts happen ALL the time. But those are bad acts of infringement, not assertion.

Otherwise, ‘everyone’ does not know. Unless you can clearly state what the ‘bad’ acts are and who is doing them it remains a vaporous accusation unsupported by fact. It really is no different than large infringers decrying ‘patent troll’ without defining it. In both cases the accusations are a ruse by large entities and those who openly or surreptitiously work for them as pretense to lift one end of the patent system table so they can score at will, but their small competitors never can. They are always running downhill and we always up. For them the only good patents are the ones they own. It is everyone else’s that are bad. This struggle truly is one pitting large firms against small. It is not a struggle of industries, but size. Anyone who participated in or promoted AIA is immediately suspect. They are known by the company they keep. Follow the money trail.

But even if there were a ‘handful’ as you state, that is hardly cause to justify gutting the patent system for all inventors and every other patent owner. That is what the past Congress did with AIA, the PTO with its overhanded overreach in its rules and actions causing the destruction of inventors (secret SAWS program, rigging post issue admin reviews at PTAB, etc), and certain courts such as with the Alice, eBay, etc. decisions. That has been gross overreaction tantamount to killing a gnat with an atom bomb -destroying the gnat and all else within miles. Sure, punish the guilty if there truly be any and if these supposed ‘bad’ acts truly be wrongdoing, but don’t punish those who are not doing anything wrong and don’t ignore the true bad acts of large multinational serial infringers. Is that too much to ask? All this ‘bad actor’ and patent troll’ buffoonery is nothing more than a giant red herring to distract everyone from their systematic grand theft -the work of cons and their shell games. Don’t let the crooks off the hook.

This is how large repeat infringers poison the well of inventors -by spreading lies, distortions, and rumors. Their purpose is not to ‘reform’ anything , but rather to make it easier for them to rob and crush us. Notice how they never give specifics, but always make broad and general statements which cannot be dissected and proven to be untrue. This ‘bad actors’ rumor is no different than the specious claim of ‘patent trolls’.  If large infringers had any specific charges or substantive proof, they would state them. Because they don’t they continue to float unsubstantiated rumors and falsehoods. That is all their calls for ‘reform’ can stand on. All their ‘reforms’ ever do is legalize theft. Don’t believe the lies of thieves and their Chinese style propaganda. Just because they call it ‘reform’ doesn’t mean it is.

‘faster and cheaper’

http://www.ipwatchdog.com/2017/11/26/director-iancu-act-one/id=90426/

‘The original intent for the new procedures was to provide a faster and cheaper alternative to litigation, and if the rules are properly implemented, this can still be achieved.’

Sure, these post issue admin reviews are ‘faster and cheaper’…for large repeat infringers.

To the contrary, we believe the large infringers who wrote that law never intended those proceedings as a way to better resolve patent disputes, but as a way to allow them to more easily rob and crush their small competitors. Either way, that is exactly what they have done.

All these proceedings do is offload all the expense of patent disputes onto those least able to afford them -inventors and other small businesses. They run up their expenses and delay justice until small competitors go bankrupt long before they can ever get to court to enforce their rights. They separate the haves from the have-nots. There is good reason why former CAFC chief judge Rader referred to these proceedings as ‘death squads killing property rights’. Any proceeding which denies or substantially reduces any American’s right to trial by jury must be abolished.

Still, we agree with you that director Iancu needs to filter out advice from large serial infringers (thieves) and those who work for or have close ties to them, including those who promoted AIA -no matter what industry, profession or sector. We view anyone who participated in or promoted that bill as having strong ties to large infringers, or otherwise having been commandeered by them. All they do is push large infringer Chinese style propaganda. We believe it is essential to now purge the PTO of all large infringer infiltrators and cronies.

Further, while we believe fee diversion is an issue and small entity fees in general, there are many issues we believe are far more important. A complete list of what we believe the most important issues are sequenced by their importance to inventors can be found at:

‘Private [property] rights…’

http://thehill.com/opinion/judiciary/365476-patent-rights-are-property-rights-and-we-must-protect-them

‘Private [property] rights are strictly the domain of the federal judiciary.’

We agree. In redirecting that authority to an administrative tribunal for patent controversies, the America Invents Act (AIA) has stripped inventors of our right to a trial by jury for our most important and valuable property. Any law which denies that right, or materially diminishes it must be struck down. The large multinational infringers (thieves) who we believe based on our knowledge drafted AIA and the original 1981 law that established post issue admin review clearly violated the spirit and letter of the Constitution. Abuse of that process began soon after.

https://aminventorsforjustice.wordpress.com/2016/07/28/abuse-of-that-process-began-shortly-after/

SCOTUS now has the opportunity and duty to reclaim the authority of the courts and restore inventor rights. This is a crucial time for the Court to reestablish rule of law and the supremacy of the Constitution.

In support of a just court, we are now beginning to draft our bill: The American Inventor Restoration Act. We will be working with our friends in Congress to finalize, introduce, and pass into law.

‘he works for…Accenture’

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/innovations/wp/2017/12/08/the-stupidest-patents-of-2017/?utm_term=.f89941fcf66c

According to the Georgetown website, he works for…Accenture.

http://cbpp.georgetown.edu/people/larry-downes

‘He is currently a research fellow with the Accenture Institute for High Performance.”

Can you say, ‘duplicity’?

This is just another example of how large multinational infringers (thieves) and those who work for them obfuscate their identity to hide their true intent -to legalize theft of their small competitor inventions. Once again, they’re trying to pull a fast one. We see it routinely. Don’t believe the lies of thieves. Just because they call it reform doesn’t mean it is.

‘we have more innovation’

http://time.com/money/3956351/jack-bogle-index-fund/

Q: Why not? More than half of the stocks you could buy, by market capitalization, are outside the U.S.
A: In the long run, market returns are created by business returns. And I think American business and the American economy are going to be the strongest in the world. I think we have more innovation. I think we have better technology. And I know we have a better legal structure, better shareholder protections. Some foreign nations are fine, but not all.’

Those are the comments of Jack Bogle, the founder of Vanguard. Jack understands the importance of innovation and technology to the American economy. Yet recent changes to the American patent system have nearly destroyed the incentive of inventors to create. That is clear by the collapse in small entity issued patents and filed applications which according to our recent study have atrophied to about only 10% of their historical shares, if not less and still falling. The reasons are simple: it is now far too hard, expensive and slow for us to get, keep, and enforce patents to our inventions. To a great extent the legal structure -courts, no longer respect our property or our rights. These are the reasons American inventors are leaving the patent system and are no longer inventing, unless we can protect our discoveries as trade secrets. But few inventions can be so protected successfully. For us, the patent system is in shambles.
