‘Critics say that so-called patent trolls, companies that hold patents but don’t manufacture any products themselves, have flocked to the Eastern District of Texas, filing cases and winning big-dollar judgments.’
what they say: patent trolls
what they mean: small competitors
So say large multinational invention thieves. How can we make or commercialize our inventions when our large competitors are free to use (steal) our inventions thanks to the SCOTUS eBay decision and have all the money they will ever need to run us out of business if we try? The truth is much or all of what they make is made offshore anyway. So even they don’t make anything in America, plus they keep the true inventors from doing so. Sure they manufacture…OUR inventions!
What they don’t tell you is the courts now after the SCOTUS eBay decision refuse to issue injunctions so inventors and small competitors now have no fair chance at commercializing their inventions and have to sit idly by as we watch our large competitors rob us blind. SCOTUS has failed inventors and America. Who are they working for anyway? They must either be strong for property rights, or they will be weak for America. Whatever happened to rule of law? Isn’t this the type of class biased law and injustice America’s founders fled Europe and elsewhere from? So property rights are only for the wealthy and politically connected??
For years now these large multinationals have been ransacking and looting their small competitors, grinding them into dust. Meanwhile those same large multinationals move more and more American jobs offshore. When they cant export jobs they import workers that displace Americans. That in large measure explains why America cant find a good paying full time job. When thieves win America loses.
The truth is we seldom now are able to get our patents from a patent office now ran by ‘former’ employees of our largest infringers -small wonder. Even when we can we cant enforce them because we don’t have the millions it costs to bring suit against these giant thieving corps. And because the deck is so stacked against us we cant get attorneys to take our cases on contingency. We believed -we were told, if we created a better technology or product, we would be rewarded. Sadly, realistically that is no longer true. We now have a patent system that encourages large thieving corps and discourages inventors.
