Inventors will tell you this trade group contains many of the world’s biggest serial patent infringers (invention thieves). Are they a cabal of thieves?
As Mark Twain once wrote, ‘truth is not hard to kill, and (that) a lie well told is immortal’. The fact is small entity issued patents are down to only about 10% of their historical share, if not less and still falling. We only win in court through appeal 3% of the time. And some courts such as the CAFC have severely capped our awarded damages so that even in the rare occasion when we do win our large competitors get off with just a slap on the wrist and keep on robbing us because the courts will no longer issue injunctions to stop their theft. THIS, is justice??
Truly, in America for large thieving corporations crime DOES pay. America is now in a state of commercial anarchy. Inventors have no fair chance of ever commercializing our inventions, or even benefiting in any material way. Why do Congress and the courts allow this commercial looting to continue? Why!
