“…we are Indians. We have no rights”
At around the 1 minute mark of the above film a character discusses his belief that the rights of Indians were not recognized. Many inventors will tell you that today they have no rights as SCOTUS, Congress, the Patent Office and the White House have turned their backs on us and permitted our large competitors to rob and crush us at will. We cannot get patents for our inventions and even in the unlikely event we do after years or even decades of fighting, we are unable to keep them when attacked by competitors in post issue review. If by some miracle we survive those serial challenges, we have little hope of enforcing our patents in courts that do not respect our property rights due in large measure to a Supreme Court who apparently believes property rights only apply to our large infringing competitors, if not only to the court itself. Double standard, hypocrisy?
When the federal Congress and courts cease to uphold the rights of citizens of the member states they become oppressors and promote injustice rather than justice. Should the federal government be reorganized or reconstituted with severely limited powers to fit their limited purpose as originally intended? When we expect more of any government than they by reason or design were intended we overburden them so that they cannot fulfill their original mandate and purpose. That the federal government does not enforce property rights for our inventions is clear proof of that. To no small degree SCOTUS has been complicit in that historically by refusing to constrain the federal govt as required by the Constitution and in so doing has aided the federal government in overreach and usurping powers they were never granted or intended to have. Meanwhile, attempting to do what they cannot and should not do they fail to do that which they can and by all reason should do: what they were created to do…protect property rights of inventors, etc (“the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries”). At the very least many believe SCOTUS needs to be reorganized into sections where judges with a knowledge of and respect for property rights decide patent cases.
