“go to the gators”

When we contemplate nature and the circumstances of animals in the wild where the law of nature is eat or be eaten, such as an alligator in wetlands and the other species unfortunate to cohabit with them, it makes our daily condition as humans and any complaints we may have against one another seem so trivial and unworthy of attention.

Yet when we consider the differences in our existences to those other animals or even to other humans from centuries or even decades ago, or even today in other parts of the world, it forces us to consider why our circumstances are so vastly different.

As Abraham Lincoln once said of the American patent system, it “added the fuel of interest to the fire of genius in the discovery and production of new and useful things”. Without these perpetual and self perpetuating advances we question if our circumstances would be significantly better than the unfortunates cohabiting with the alligator.

No, our grievances with large multinational infringers (thieves) who have promoted their doctrine of theft in the destruction of our patent system are not trivial. Rather they are of the utmost weight and vital to the interest of not just America, but to all society as a whole worldwide. Either we effectively protect the property of inventors that they may have a realistic expectation they will be able to commercialize their inventions, or they will go to the gators (the unjust, as Socrates might have said) and in time the rest of society will follow.

“private property”


“the three great and primary rights of personal security, personal liberty and private property

To secure life, liberty and property has for centuries been the purpose of government in the minds of Americans and our founders and even their ancestors dating back to the middle ages in England. Blackstone as in the above article by Samuel Adams wrote of it. James Madison went so far to say that it was the protection of our ‘faculties’, or creations and discoveries that was the “first object of government”. Yet changes in our laws since the 2005 SCOTUS Mercexchange decision have severely eroded any such protection to where it can no longer be said inventors have any material right to their inventions. Even if we can get a patent after fighting the Patent Office sometimes for decades we have no chance of successfully enforcing them. That explains why small entity patents and applications have so plummeted to only about 10% of their historical share, if not less and still falling.

Our bill will reverse that where inventors will once again have a realistic expectation we will be able to commercialize our inventions. Congress, we need your help. Pass our bill.
