‘grueling work which someone only undergoes because they have an unshakeable belief in the value of their idea’
But that unshakeable belief has been broken. Small entity patents and applications are only running about 1/10th of their historical share. Clearly, that belief that we will be rewarded for our inventions has ended. The patent system is now a sport of kings, if not thieves. While Congress pauses to deliberate and be side tracked to other issues over which some or even many believe it has no authority, it abandons inventors and its true duty to them and to protect as James Madison put it the ‘faculties’ of America -such as our inventions, which is ‘the first object of government’. Has Congress lost its way? Has it allowed itself to be commandeered by large multinational infringers (thieves)? The wise and principled men and women in Congress must step up and lead the way out of this commercial anarchy. As each day goes by more inventors and small entities are falling off the map and will never return.
Meanwhile, more American jobs are shipped off shore by these same large multinational infringers. When they cant export jobs, they import workers. Often Americans are forced to train the same import workers who then take their jobs. Even our college graduates cant find jobs in their fields because all these skilled labor jobs have been sent offshore by these giant thieves. Because large infringers are now able to rob and crush their small competitors who are the principal source of new skilled jobs here, those jobs are no longer to be found. All these graduates get for their effort is a giant sized debt with no hope of gainful employment in their intended fields. The longer Congress waits to restore the patent system, the longer America’s economy and jobs will take to recover. American property rights and jobs are on fire. Who in Congress will step up to put it out?
