‘loosening of patenting standards’


‘At the same time, a loosening of patenting standards in recent decades has led to an almost fivefold jump in the number of patents issued annually. The result has been  the creation of a legal minefield for innovators, while patent “trolls”, who live off harassment litigation, have a field day.’

Take a look at this org’s Board…


Are they just another big business lobbyist group masquerading as a public interest group? It appears so to us. All they know about patents is…they don’t have any.

For example, notice how many have connections with large multinational corps? The truth is the small entity share of issued patents, according to a recent sampling of the PTO’s web site, has shrank to about 1/10th of it’s historical level. The reasons? It is now too hard, expensive and slow for inventors to obtain and enforce patents for our inventions.

Also, the number of patents issued has always increased annually. In fact, for over 100 years (since 1900) the number of patents issued has increased at about 3 times the population percentage increase, which seems reasonable considering the steady migration of the American economy from agriculture to technology.



year iss’d pats pop (mils)
2016 301,325 321.93
1986 71,741 240.13
ratio 4.20 1.34
1900 23296 76.09
ratio to 2016 12.93 4.23

So, to use (with intent to mislead?) the historical trend to conclude patents are now too easy to obtain is simply unsupported by the data or reason. Patents do not impede innovation, only theft of. The true ‘innovators’ are the inventors who create the technologies that patents issue for -not the large multinationals and their PR puppets who spin a web of lies and distortions with the aim of stealing them and covering up that theft.

Don’t believe the lies of large multinational infringers (thieves) and their Chinese style propaganda machine. Just because they call it ‘reform’ doesn’t mean it is.
