‘The STRONGER Patents Act would strengthen the ability of inventors to enforce their patent rights in court, bring additional procedural safeguards to proceedings before the PTAB…’
We inventors disagree and only wish it was so. The bill as it now stands will do neither, but it may make it easier for our large competitor infringers to rob and crush us. In fact, there is nothing in the bill that will significantly help inventors, if at all. The problem is that so far all bills that have been introduced in cmte and Congress have been in essence written by or from the vantage point of large infringers, or those with close ties to them. It certainly appears so to us based on the content of those bills.
Not surprisingly, all their changes will do is make it easier for them to destroy us. Further analysis was included in a prior article…
Even if the bill’s attempt at restoring injunctions worked for us, which we are convinced it will not, it would not help inventors because we cannot get injunctions for patents we cannot get or keep. The current problems with the patent system run far deeper than injunctions, though they are our top concern. Unfortunately, no present bill adequately addresses that or other issues for us.
The great problem that led to the devastation of AIA is Congress shut inventors out of the process. We believe large multinational infringers in essence wrote that bill. Not surprisingly, the results were disastrous for property rights. When thieves write law, America loses. If Congress doubles down on that error and again shuts out inventors, that may usher America back to the middle ages. We welcome the opportunity to work with our friends in Congress on a bill which will truly restore the American patent system. We are now drafting that bill. The measures we propose are here…
