‘Cotropia also pointed out that the number of filings has been falling’
But it’s not about the number of filings which is largely irrelevant now post AIA. It’s about the number of parties sued.
As to Levy …
For 200 years in America a plaintiff had a right to bring suit for a tort in any district where their rights were trespassed. That is due process and only fair. If they don’t want to be sued in TX or wherever, then don’t infringe there. Large multinationals have warped law to make us sue them in their backyards where they have an unfair advantage with their employees and relatives of on the jury and may have improper influence on the selection or election of judges. There we wait until hell freezes over to get a trial date and end up going out of business before we ever get there. That suits large multinational invention thieves just fine. Their goal is not fairness, it’s legalized theft so they can rob and crush their small competitors.
Don’t believe the lies of thieves. Just because they call it reform doesn’t mean it is.
