‘We argue that IPR violates Article III of the Constitution, which vests the judicial power in the federal courts, and also the Seventh Amendment, which guarantees a right to a jury in civil litigation.’
We agree. The Constitution merely acknowledges and codifies the historically recognized rights of inventors and authors. As then future president James Madison wrote in Federalist No. 43 , “The utility of the clause will scarcely be questioned. The copyright of authors has been solemnly adjudged, in Great Britain, to be a right of common law. The right to useful inventions seems with equal reason to belong to the inventors. The public good fully coincides in both cases with the claims of the individuals.”
These then are property rights in every sense and as such demand the same treatment afforded all property rights -a lawful court and jury.
Also, see measure 3 in our Statement of Position as below.
