‘invalidating weak patents’

http://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/article/Patent-cases-plunge-as-trolls-thwarted-8416795.php

‘The board’s reputation for invalidating weak patents has likely discouraged patent trolls’

So say large multinational invention thieves and their Chinese style propaganda machines. The reality is that all these changes have done is destroyed inventors and small entities and legalized theft of our inventions. There’s good reason why former chief judge Rader of the CAFC has described PTO post issue reviews as “patent death squads”. Just because they call it “reform” doesn’t mean it is. Don’t believe the lies of thieves and their selective data they misuse to form fraudulent and misleading conclusions.

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.

‘abuse of that process began shortly after’

It is true that PTO post issue review of patents dates back to the 1980’s (took affect Jul 1981), but abuse of that process began shortly after. In that period for example, physicist Gordon Gould, inventor of the laser, was pulled into such a review after initiating litigation against infringers: see “Laser Man” -McPartland, and “Laser” -N Taylor. Taylor documents extensive, long term and repeated abuse of the process, including by then PTO management, beginning at the bottom of p225 for the next 60 pages. This is what happens when the PTO is permitted to review its own issued patents. Keep in mind for almost 200 years prior there had been no PTO administrative post issue review of patents.

This experiment has since proven to be a dismal failure and an invitation to abuse of process by PTO management and large infringers. All it did was substantially transfer the full burden of the expense of patent enforcement in the case of inventors to those least able to afford it. Defending against these PTO reviews routinely costs about $500,000 when few inventors and small entities can afford one such review and when infringers file for multiple reviews of an inventor’s patents we are completely defenseless and must settle for whatever we can get no matter the value of our inventions or risk complete ruin, though by that time there is little we can do but suffer a complete loss of our property and life savings -bankruptcy. How can any decent human being of sense conclude that these reviews are anything but an invitation for and legalization of invention theft?

As illustrated by recent scandals such as the secret SAWS program, that abuse by PTO management and infringers has not ended. It has only gotten worse and has since AIA become an epidemic. As a result, inventors and small entities are largely unable to enforce rights to their inventions. Adding to that recent disclosure of systematic and widespread abuse by PTO management in blocking patents from issuing and the picture becomes sinister for inventors. We are not surprised when top PTO managers and even administrative judges at the Appeals Board (PTAB) are former officers of repeat infringers who have been pushing what they call patent “reform”.

Meanwhile, those same Chinese and large multinational invention thieves have been ransacking and looting small American entities taking everything they can carry. Those are the same multinationals who when they cant export jobs, import workers and artificially inflate their employed Americans. We are convinced these reports prove without question that post issue review of patents by the PTO invites abuse of process by PTO management and infringers and unjustly and illegally deprives inventors of their private property.  Post issue review also clearly violates due process and the clear meaning of the Constitution and the intent of America’s founders as we outline in our position statement and in articles and commentaries published on our web site.

‘predatory patent litigation’

‘predatory patent litigation’

But this claim by Chinese and large multinational invention thieves of patent litigation abuse is as overblown, if not fictional and contrived, as their cries of an explosion in patent suits. Don’t believe the lies of thieves. Just because they all it ‘reform’ doesn’t mean it is. As Mark Twain said, ‘truth is not hard to kill, and (that) a lie well told is immortal’.

For example, based on the Justia web site there have been 2546 patent suits filed so far this year. In 2010, prior to AIA, there were 3699 filed so patent suits will have risen about 18% in 6 years as projected to the end of 2016, or 3% per year -a modest gain by any disinterested rational observer, despite the dissembling by large multinational invention thieves and their propaganda machines. However, as a result of AIA patent holders must now file 1 suit for each infringer whereas before we could and routinely did include 10’s of infringers per suit. Therefore, while the number of suits have increased only modestly the number of parties sued have decreased substantially

‘examiners preventing an appeal’

‘examiners preventing an appeal’

There is a much simpler way to gauge the health of the American patent system -look at the applications filed by, patents issued to and number of infringers sued by inventors and small entities. Across the board all have plummeted over the last 10 years for 3 simple reasons. It is now too hard, too slow and too expensive for us to get and enforce our patents. When we have to fight the Patent Office to get or keep our patents we go out of business.

Enough said. The time for action is now while there is still an economy and middle class left to save. Is the Patent Office ran, or controlled by invention thieves? The American patent system and American jobs are in crisis. When Chinese and large multinational thieves win, America loses.

‘Patent examiners …have been instructed to reject’

http://www.ipwatchdog.com/2016/07/18/patent-examiners-frivolous-rejections/id=70999/

‘Patent examiners are telling attorneys and agents that they have been instructed to reject’

Inventors and small entities will tell you and are convinced the patent system is in shambles and is now a sham. If we have to fight to get or keep our patents, we go out of business. Meanwhile the large multinationals who now routinely steal our inventions get off Scott free and laugh all the way to the bank. The American patent system is in crisis and so is America.

‘The number of patent lawsuits filed…’

https://morningconsult.com/alert/gao-number-of-patent-suits-up-more-than-150-since-2007-majority-tech-related/

‘The number of patent lawsuits filed in U.S. district courts climbed from 2,000 in 2007 to more than 5,000 last year’

So say Chinese and large multinational invention thieves and their paid propaganda machines. But the America Stops Inventing Act (Asia as we like to call it because that’s where it’s sending all our jobs) forced patent holders to sue each infringer in separate suits, whereas before 10’s of defendants could be included in each suit. Consequently, while the number of suits has increased from 2007 to 2015 (but only 3% per year as below since AIA) the number of parties sued has dropped precipitously. For inventors and small entities they have collapsed as we can no longer find contingent attorneys to take our cases. Such is the true state of America’s patent system. Don’t believe the lies and dissembling of thieves and their paid puppets.

For example, based on the Justia web site there have been 2546 patent suits filed so far this year. In 2010, prior to AIA, there were 3699 filed so patent suits have risen about 18% in 6 years, or 3% per year -a modest gain by any disinterested rational observer, despite the dissembling by large multinational invention thieves and their propaganda machines.

‘sentenced…to nearly four years in prison

‘A federal judge sentenced a former scouting director of the St. Louis Cardinals to nearly four years in prison’

We have to ask, how can it be that one can get jail time for stealing a competitor’s business information, but if you steal their property, such as an invention, there are no criminal penalties and seldom any civil? But that’s exactly what routinely happens now in our courts and with our laws because when our large competitors steal our inventions, inventors and small entities can seldom do anything about it. Invention thieves have little threat of civil, and certainly no threat of criminal penalties.

According to published reports criminal penalties for theft of business information was driven by the large tech companies -the same industry where members routinely, blatantly and repeatedly steal the inventions of their small competitors, then lobby Congress, the White House and the courts to legalize that theft. If it is a crime to steal a competitor’s business information, how can it not be a crime to steal their inventions which most often has far more value and does far greater damage to the victim? Those in tech who balk at this proposal only expose their hypocrisy, deceit, treachery and inequity. Are they the biggest thieves on the planet?

Justice in America has been turned on its head. America desperately needs REAL patent reform, including criminal penalties for theft of inventions.
