‘This issue of forum shopping has become a major point of contention in patent reform discussions.’
Venue selection is only an issue with large multinational infringers (invention thieves) who often secretly fund and control the pseudo public interest groups/lobbyists this writer works for. Did they pay to print this piece? Infringers would rather have us sue them in their backyards where their employees or friends/family of are on the juries and where they exert improper influence on judge selection where we have to wait until hell freezes over to get a trial date. Meanwhile, we go out of business and they win by default.
But justice delayed is justice denied. Weakening property rights is NOT an American tradition. Since the founding of America and dating back to the middle ages in England anyone whose rights were trampled on had the right to sue where they were trespassed (tort). Dont believe the lies of thieves and their paid puppets. Just because they call it ‘reform’ doesn’t mean it is.
