“rights and protections conferred by a U.S. patent have eroded to the point that they are weaker today than at any time since the Great Depression”
Sadly, it is true. Chinese and large multinationals have so systematically weakened the patent system by duping or bullying some in the courts, Congress, the PTO and the White House that patents are now too hard, expensive and lengthy to get and enforce. It is destroying inventors and small entities.
The patent system now teeters on the brink of lawlessness. Call it what you will…patent hoarder, patent troll, non-practicing entity, shell company, etc. It all means one thing: “we’re using your invention and we’re not going to stop or pay”. It’s a pure red herring by large invention thieves and their paid puppets to kill any inventor support system. As Mark Twain said, ‘truth is not hard to kill, and (that) a lie well told is immortal’. Those who use the amorphous phrase ‘patent troll’ expose themselves as thieves, duped, or doped and perpetuate the lie.
