‘PTAB is necessary to prevent trolls from asserting “bad patents” with frivolous lawsuits‘
Let’s deconstruct the large infringer propaganda in this statement. First, since large infringers refuse to define the phrase, we do so for them.
patent troll=small competitor
That by itself will help Congress put all the remaining Chinese style propaganda of large multinational infringers (thieves) in perspective.
Next, when large infringers say ‘bad patents’, what they mean is those owned by others. Similarly, by ‘frivolous lawsuits’ they mean ‘any time WE are sued’.
It really is that simple.
Most importantly, the PTAB is a pseudo judicial/administrative body which ‘tries’ cases involving property disputes -specifically inventions. We believe any such body or process which denies any American the right to a trial by jury is wholly in tension with any reasonable reading of American history and the Constitution. Since the founding of America and indeed into the middle ages in England as codified in Magna Carta all citizens have had a right to a trial by jury. America’s founders regarded that right to be ‘inalienable’. Large infringers somehow defrauded Congress into passing a bill -no doubt written almost entirely by large infringers, which violates that right. When thieves write the laws no property is safe. The only just course is to either repeal the law or replace it with one that respects and guards that and all other rights. We stand ready to work closely with our friends in Congress and elsewhere to craft a bill which does so while in general restoring America’s patent system which has been so debased by large multinationals so as to make obtaining, keeping and enforcing our patents practically impossible. To that end we have drafted a set of measures we believe will do just that.
