‘challenge of patent quality‘
That is simply not true. The problem is the patents that aren’t issued, not the patents that are. Don’t believe the lies of large multinational invention thieves and their propaganda machine. We have a good idea what side of this the author works for. Just take a look at their site.
Insurance “Law Firm of the Year”
It’s not unusual for former government employees to leave public service for industry and lobbying for. We ask, are there those who work for large corps while they’re still in public service?
Talk with any seasoned inventor or their attorneys and you’ll get the same answer. The patent system for us is in crisis. It’s too hard, expensive and slow for us to get and enforce our patents. Many of us now find ourselves in a protracted fight of 10 years or longer with the patent office to even get our patents. Unfortunately, seldom can we afford that. If we have to fight to get our patents, we go out of business. Even if we are lucky enough to get a patent from a patent office ran by managers we regard as overtly partial to our large infringers, it is nearly impossible for us to assert as we in short measure end up back at the PTO where we now have to fight to keep our patents and are thereby deprived our our right to a trial by jury for our most valuable asset…our invention. If we have to fight to keep our patents, we go out of business. Just because they call it “reform” doesn’t mean it is.
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.
