‘As we celebrate the fifth birthday of the AIA’
No doubt, large multinational infringers (invention thieves) and their paid puppets are dancing in the aisles. All that bill did was allow them to rob and crush their small competitors at will and ship more and more American jobs offshore. When they can’t export jobs they import workers. Don’t believe the lies of thieves. Just because they call it ‘reform’ doesn’t mean it is. When thieves win America loses.
That bill did several things to help large multinational infringers. One of if not the worst was the expansion of post issue PTO administrative review of issued patents. What that did was deny our right to a trial by jury for our most valuable asset -our inventions. It was pure strategic gamesmanship by infringers. That right had been held as a common law ‘inalienable’ right and fundamental to all Americans dating back to England’s middle ages and the Magna Carta. Not surprisingly and as we predicted, that has worked about as well for us as administrative trial worked for Joan of Arc. In an admin review/trial contingent representation is not available to us. We don’t have the cash to pay by the hour so we end up defenseless and lose by default. No doubt that was the intent of infringers who pushed this bull, not to cut the expense of resolving disputes. Although it certainly did cut infringers expenses, it did so at a far greater expense to inventors…our inventions. So the bill shifted most all the burden of disputes to those least able to afford it.
We believe the rank and file and some in the committees of Congress trusted or were bullied and relied on the representations of a few large multinational proponents and colleagues that the bill was just and lawful. They were outrageously mislead. Those proponents could not be trusted. We now must course correct.
