‘he first contacted’

‘He said he first contacted Apple in September 2017, giving the Cupertino, California-based company detailed information about the patent.’

This is an all too common experience for inventors. We bring our discoveries and developments to companies for whom it would appear such technologies would be of interest only to be told as William Orton of Western Union told Bell, “what would I do with such a toy?”. Yet within a couple years they contracted with Edison to circumvent Bell’s patent.

This is the way of business, certainly big business, as noted by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Without a strong patent system inventors have no chance. This is tragically the present state of our patent system. That’s why so many of us have exited from inventing and why the small entity shares of patent and application filings have collapsed. Our bill will change all that back to where inventors will once again have a realistic expectation we will be able to commercialize our inventions. Today we have none. Congress, pass our bill.

For our position and the changes we advocate (the rest of the truth) to restore the patent system, or to join our effort, please visit us at https://aminventorsforjustice.wordpress.com/category/our-position/
