‘the AIA created a new administrative tribunal for invalidating “bad patents”’
We believe the true purpose of these administrative post issue reviews never was to remove ‘bad’ patents, but to help insulate large infringers who steal our inventions -to legalize their theft. In any event, that has been the result. Another serious consideration is post issue reviews deny our right to trial by jury. As a result, it is now far too hard, slow and expensive for us to get, keep, and enforce patents. When we have to fight for either we go out of business.
We are convinced what we have in affect now is a patent system controlled by infringers and those under their influence running it. In no small part that explains why the small entity share of patents and applications has collapsed to only about 1/10th of their historical shares. The patent system for us is now surely a game of thieves. Congress must now act to restore the patent system while there is still something left to save. If they hesitate, more inventors will fall off the map and they will never return. Meanwhile, our large multinational infringing (thieving) competitors will continue to export more and more American jobs. When they cant export jobs they import workers who displace Americans. That in large measure explains why America can’t find a good paying full time job.
