At 26:40 the segment describes an experiment where one monkey is given a grape and another a piece of cucumber as a reward for performing the same task. In a similar vein, inventors are given a task which for us is far harder to perform than our large competitors because they are far better capitalized -often as a result from having stolen our inventions. The task has thus been engineered, orchestrated and manipulated by our large competitors so as to give them an advantage. We both jump through hoops, but ours have been set on fire. Not surprisingly, like the monkeys who were treated unfairly, inventors are refusing to participate in the never ending shell game of patent law. That explains why our small entity issued and filed patent applications have plummeted to only about 10% of their historical shares -if not less and still falling.
For example, in the present system our issued patents are subject to admin review at the PTO. But just one of those proceeding can cost us up to $1 million which we seldom have the money to pay and thereby lose by default and our patents can be challenged in multiple such proceedings. Obviously, our patents we fight and claw for years to obtain are in ever present danger. Except for our bill, no other bill adequately addresses this fatal inequity in the law, or many others inventors are now faced with.
