‘Dickens’ famous case ended when legal costs devoured the entire estate’
It is a similar if not worse problem today for inventors and small businesses. It takes us years and hundreds of thousands to get our patents and then we find we are unable to enforce them, or keep if we try. That is why by our last study small entity issued patents and filings are down to only 10% of their historical shares, if not less and still falling. It makes more sense for us to take our inventions to our graves rather than risk our families well being on fool’s gold. Why bother when we’re beaten before we begin? For a large number of us the patent system is dead. To our horror it has been reformed to death by misinformed and misguided legislators and jurists. Is there any rule of law left in America? All these changes, guided by the hands of our large thieving competitors, have crushed us. Do any of us truly own our property or have rights? What happened to the inalienable rights America’s founders spoke of?
