For inventors, the American patent system is now crummy. We can make the lunch (invent), but we can’t eat it (commercialize or equitably benefit from). All we get are the crumbs, if any are left.
In a patent system that forces us to fight to get, keep and enforce patents for our inventions we simply have no fair chance. That is why our issued patents and filed applications have plummeted from their historical shares and why our large competitors are now free to eat our lunch. Yes, there is now such a thing as a free lunch.
Congress, we need your help. Pass our measures into law. The more you pass, the more fully America’s invention based pipeline will fuel America’s economy and create new jobs for America.
