‘The USPTO should assess rules surrounding review proceedings to ensure fairness to applicants and petitioners.’
Better yet, respect their rights. We believe a far better solution which respects the inalienable rights of all Americans to a trial by jury is to completely remove any post issue review from the PTO which has historically been managed and dominated by former employees of some of the worlds largest infringers. In our view all they protect is the market dominance of their former (some will tell you still present) employers by obstructing the issuance and enforcement of patents for their small would be competitors. The secret PTO SAWS program which secretly blocks issuance of targeted patents is conclusive evidence -the PTO is not impartial. Post issue admin reviews of our patents have worked about as well for inventors as an admin trial did for Joan of Arc. There is a fundamental reason why America’s founders demanded the right to a trial by jury and claimed it as an inalienable right. How can any government which does not respect the rights of its citizens expect to be respected?
