Sure, for large invention thieves. Don’t believe their lies. If infringers don’t want to be sued in EDTX, don’t infringe there and then have a connection with the district. Inventors understand and will tell you it has always been the case in western law that when one’s rights are trespassed the plaintiff has a right to file where their rights are trespassed. If we are robbed or mugged in Albuquerque or Marshall, we have a right to sue there.
Also, we question the RPX claims of any increase in NPE or any other litigants. For example, what does ‘defendants added’ mean’? They use the phrase, but do not explain it. Inventors and their attorneys will tell you the number of ‘parties sued’ which is all that matters has substantially dropped since AIA. Don’t believe the lies of thieves like RPX and their large Chinese and multinational client base who for years have been ransacking, looting and crushing their small competitors.
All this patent troll and ‘reform’ talk is mere dissembling by China, huge multinational thieves, and their paid puppets. If you tell a lie often enough and can dupe others to repeat that lie, eventually it is accepted as fact. As Mark Twain said, ‘truth is not hard to kill, and (that) a lie well told is immortal’. Those who use the amorphous terms patent troll, NPE, etc expose themselves as thieves, duped, or doped and perpetuate the lie. They have already damaged the American patent system so that property rights are teetering on lawlessness. Simply put, their intent is to legalize theft -to twist and weaken the patent system so it can only be used by them and no one else. Then they can steal at will and destroy their small competitors AND WITH THEM THE JOBS THEY WOULD HAVE CREATED. For the last several years now they have been ransacking and looting small entities taking everything they can carry. Meanwhile, the huge multinationals crafting these lies ship more and more American jobs to China and elsewhere overseas. When they cant export jobs, they import workers.
