‘Free seminar’

Recently, inventors received the following from the USPTO:

Free seminar on protecting your IP in China

Georgia business owners and inventors will have a unique opportunity to get valuable tips on how to protect their intellectual property (IP) in China at our China IP Road Show. This free, one-day program brings together IP attorneys, local business people, and experts from the U.S. government to share their insights on ways that U.S. rights holders can protect their IP in China.

Many inventors would respond this is the PTO’s way of saying we have no chance here so we’d better look elsewhere.

‘floodgates to overreaching patents’

‘reopening the floodgates to overreaching patents’

So say large multinational infringers and their paid lobbyists. They are the ones most responsible for the destruction of our patent system, as aided by some in the courts, Congress and the White House. Theirs is a doctrine of theft. What we now have approaches property anarchy. Do the math…

patent troll=small competitor

All their proposed changes have done such as in AIA is legalize theft of our inventions. Meanwhile, they ship more and more American jobs offshore. When they cant export jobs they import workers who displace Americans. Don’t believe the lies of thieves.

None of the bills presently in Congress will restore our patent system.  We have been asked by our friends in Congress to draft a bill that will. We now are cementing our alliances as we drive to complete our bill and ready for introduction and passage. We welcome the participation of all those who truly wish to restore our patent system where patents are awarded for all useful inventions as America’s founders intended that  inventors will once again have a realistic expectation we will be able to commercialize our inventions. We do not now. Our patent system has been ‘reformed’ to death.

‘It’s time to restore America’s patent system’

‘It’s time to restore America’s patent system’

We completely agree. It has been ‘reformed’ to death. The problem is that none of the bills brought before Congress to date will do so. They mostly do not fully or directly address the chief problems for inventors, if at all, and ignore most every other. Perhaps this principally is a result of those who members of Congress have been talking with and who have had a large hand in the content of those bills. Large multinationals are not inventors. They may employ scientists and technicians, but their needs are not the same as inventors and small businesses. We rely on patents to protect our inventions and give us a chance at commercializing. In contrast, large multinationals are more apt to be defendants in patent suits than plaintiffs. They can protect their markets by their size alone. Patents to them (especially ours) are more often a threat, not a protection. It should be no surprise if all their proposed changes will do is make it easier for them to infringe (steal).

Our competitors, especially large, aren’t going to line up to voluntarily pay to use our inventions or ask for permission. That is not how business works. No, they’re going to ransack us and carry away what they can in the dark of night, or in broad daylight if they have to and worry about being caught and any potential consequences after. They are on the steal now pay later plan which means never in this era. They take (steal) what they want. Unless the courts and Congress step in and reestablish rule of law -property rights, things will only get worse…if that’s possible. This isn’t the only time patent law has been a disgrace in America. Cotton gin inventor Eli Whitney had so many infringement suits to stop counterfeiters that it drove him out of the cotton gin business. The law failed him as it now fails so many of us.

We welcome the participation of all our friends in Congress as we work to cement our alliances and complete our bill.

‘lobbied on behalf of Apple’

‘Delrahim also lobbied on behalf of Apple in 2006 and 2007 on patent reform.’

They call it ‘reform’. All it does is legalize theft of our inventions and block us from commercializing. Our patent system has been reformed to death by large multinational infringers (thieves) and their partners in crime. Theirs is a doctrine of theft. As Mark Twain said, ‘truth is not hard to kill, and (that) a lie well told is immortal’.

‘using their vast market power to suppress competition’

https://thehill.com/policy/technology/446733-house-judiciary-launches-antitrust-investigation-into-tech-giants

‘using their vast market power to suppress competition’

We believe many large multinationals have. We have seen it firsthand. Certain past and present courts, members of Congress and White House occupants have contributed. They have done so by altering the law to legalize theft of our inventions which obstructs our ability to commercialize them. These multinationals have lobbied and flimflammed their way to making patents for their small competitors far too hard, slow and expensive to get, enforce and even keep if we try. When we have to fight to do either we go out of business. The laws are already in place (or at least were prior to eBay) to remedy the situation far better than Congress otherwise ever could. As Confucius said ‘Learning without thinking is useless. Thinking without learning is dangerous.’ That explains why AIA only further legalized theft. When Congress only seeks input from large infringers (thieves) it  should not be surprising if those laws only serve to worsen property theft.

At the same time the just enforcement of property rights (such as for inventions) will safeguard America against ‘too big to fail’ which caused the calamity of the prior decade. Have we already forgotten that hot mess? Congress and the courts need to stop obstructing competition and get back to encouraging it which is what patents used to do before eBay and our bill will restore that straight-with. We enthusiastically welcome the collaboration and support of all our past and present friends in Congress and the courts as we complete our bill and ready for introduction and passage.
