‘chose not to define categories of inventions that would be excluded from patent protection’
The reason why they did not was they believed and as recited in our federal Constitution every ‘useful’ invention deserved patent protection. James Madison wrote in the Federalist Papers “The utility of the clause will scarcely be questioned. The copyright of authors has been solemnly adjudged, in Great Britain, to be a RIGHT of common law. The right to useful inventions seems with equal reason to belong to the inventors. The public good fully coincides in both cases with the claims of the individuals.”
No doubt, that right does not coincide with the interests of large thieving multinationals who have conspired to destroy us and our patent system. But the purpose of the clause was to ‘secure’ the rights of inventors, not to deprive them of with a shell game for a patent system where rights go to the highest bidder.
Any just bill must provide for the patenting of ALL useful inventions. We continue to work with our friends in Congress to precisely do that and to codify our other proposed measures in our bill which will truthfully restore the patent system so that inventors will once again have a realistic expectation we will be able to commercialize our inventions.
