from an inventor

A response to our prior post from an inventor…

“Even before our current president had changes enacted to eviscerate patentee rights, Corporate America had a cavalier attitude about intellectual property rights.  They told me that companies would use any technology they want and leave it to inventors or patent owners to find their infringements.  Then they would challenge an individual inventor to risk the costs of litigation to enforce those rights.  It was standard operating procedure.

Today, with forced re-examination of patents, Markman rulings, and the like, the individual inventor is rarely able to capitalize on his inventions.  The only hope is a corporate partner or a contingent fee attorney together with years of challenges.”
