‘admissions of the director’s manipulation of Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) panel members ‘
This is no revelation to us. As we’ve been saying, PTAB is where our patents and their inventions go to die. This is why we also say the PTO applies the law in the most disastrous way possible for us and why it is now far too hard, slow and expensive for us to get, keep and enforce our patents. The patent system now shelters large multinational infringers making it child’s play for them to rob and crush their small American competitors and in no small part explains why small entity issued patents and applications have atrophied to only about 1/10th of their historical shares, if not less and still falling and why America cant find a good paying full time job. There are good reasons why former CAFC Chief Judge Rader referred to the PTO PTAB as a ‘patent death squad killing property rights’.
When we have to fight to get, keep, or enforce our patents we go out of business.
When one combines that injustice to a denial of our rights to constitutional courts and juries, ALL post issue admin reviews must be abolished. Together they have destroyed inventors and small American businesses while encouraging theft -sending good paying American jobs to foreign shores. These are critical reasons why our college graduates must now take part time low paying jobs in unrelated fields and why many must work multiple part time jobs to support their families.
