‘Complaints at the U.S. trade agency typically take 15-18 months once the commission agrees to investigate, far quicker than a district court.’
But inventors and small entities seldom have access to the ITC and the problems for us with the courts are far deeper and beyond. In general, it is now far too hard, expensive and slow for us to get and enforce, or even keep our patents if we try. For us the patent system is all but dead. We spend a good chunk of our lives and savings to develop technologies we will never realistically be able to commercialize. The federal government has failed it’s Constitutional mandate to protect America’s ‘faculties’, which as President James Madison declared is the ‘first object of government’ and one of the principle reasons the founders argued why the federal government should be created. Without it, are there enough just arguments for a federal government? Do its evils and costs outweigh its benefits to the states and their citizens?
Meanwhile, our large multinational competitors rob and plunder us while they export American jobs to foreign shores. When they can’t export jobs they import workers who displace Americans. This in no small measure is why Americans can’t find good paying full time jobs and why our college graduates can’t find jobs in their fields of study….unless they move to China or India.
