‘it is more difficult’

https://www.forbes.com/sites/stephenkey/2018/05/04/why-independent-inventors-are-in-danger/#31625b717498

Simply put, it is more difficult for independent inventors and small business owners to assert their rights to their inventions today for many reasons , including the following.’

More importantly, for all but few it is now impossible to commercialize.

‘legal costs devoured the entire estate’

‘Dickens’ famous case ended when legal costs devoured the entire estate’

It is a similar if not worse problem today for inventors and small businesses. It takes us years and hundreds of thousands to get our patents and then we find we are unable to enforce them, or keep if we try. That is why by our last study small entity issued patents and filings are down to only 10% of their historical shares, if not less and still falling. It makes more sense for us to take our inventions to our graves rather than risk our families well being on fool’s gold. Why bother when we’re beaten before we begin? For a large number of us the patent system is dead. To our horror it has been reformed to death by misinformed and misguided legislators and jurists. Is there any rule of law left in America? All these changes, guided by the hands of our large thieving competitors, have crushed us. Do any of us truly own our property or have rights? What happened to the inalienable rights America’s founders spoke of?

‘out in front’

http://fortune.com/2019/03/02/us-tech-race-china/?iid=sr-link2

‘The U.S. is still out in front of global rivals when it comes to innovation”

Says who? By our last study the small entity share of issued patents had shrunk to only about 10% of its historical average. Why? Because patents for us are now too hard, expensive and slow to get, keep and enforce. Our large multinational competitors are now free to rob and crush us which they readily do…repeatedly.

In fact, today’s patent system more discourages inventors than encourages. We have to fight to get our patents then find only our large competitors are able to enforce theirs. We cannot ours. Why bother when we’re beaten before we even begin?

“quietly acquired”

http://fortune.com/2019/03/05/apple-lighthouse-ai-patents/?iid=sr-link4

‘quietly acquired a failed …”

Why did they fail? Was it because they were unable to get, keep, and enforce patents for their inventions? That is often the case today for inventors and small businesses. It can take us over a decade to get our patents and then we find we cannot keep or enforce them. The American patent system has been said to now be a sport of kings. Many inventors believe it is rather a sport of thieves.

‘rigged for the wealthy’

http://fortune.com/2019/01/29/2020-election-economic-reform/?iid=sr-link4

‘People see the U.S. economy as rigged for the wealthy’

Nowhere is that more evident than in our patent system. For inventors and small businesses patents have become far too hard, slow and expensive to get, keep and enforce. As a result, our large multinational competitors are now free to rob and crush us at will which they readily do…repeatedly. Is it any wonder then why small entity issued patents and patent filings have dropped to only about 10% of their historical shares -if not less and still falling though there isn’t much farther they can fall? Why invent when we cant own what we create? Why risk our time and precious capital when only our large thieving competitors will benefit? As in the case of big business fat cats, great heft often comes from grand theft. It gives a new meaning to the old phrase, the ‘filthy rich’. This patent system does not encourage invention…only theft of.

Meanwhile, our large multinational competitors move more American jobs overseas. When they cant export jobs they import workers that displace Americans.  That’s why Johnny cant find a descent paying full time job and why our college graduates cant find jobs in their fields of study and are forced to take part time low wage jobs -all the while saddled with tens of thousands if not over $100,000 in school loans. Our bill will change that by returning inventions back to their inventors which they may build businesses around while stoking America’s economy: not the economies of foreign shores.

‘the public good is disregarded’

http://www.constitution.org/fed/federa10.htm

James Madison from Federalist Paper 10:

‘…the public good is disregarded in the conflicts of rival parties, and that measures are too often decided, not according to the rules of justice and the rights of the minor party, but by the superior force of an interested and overbearing majority…’

In short and as too often happens even in America, ‘might makes right’. This is an evil the founders sought to combat by a proper organization of the federal government. Based on patent decisions since 1995 by SCOTUS and other courts and bills such as the America Invents Act ‘might (still) makes right’ for the flimflamming filthy rich and that battle is still being fought.

‘billions of dollars’

http://fortune.com/2019/02/08/brainstorm-health-daily-02-08-19/?iid=sr-link2

‘But billions of dollars are potentially at stake here’

For all but the privileged few inventors that is a pie in the sky. The sad truth is that most every inventor now has no fair expectation they will be able to commercialize their inventions or even benefit materially from them.

To begin, only a few inventions have a value even in the best of times of more than a couple hundred thousand dollars. But turning that potential into a reality is a long hard slog which has since the eBay decision in 2005 become a pipe dream. Before it and several other horrendous court decisions and legislated law, we had to jump through hoops. Now those hoops have been set on fire. It is now simply too hard, expensive and slow for us to get, keep and enforce our patents. That is why the small entity share of issued patents and filed applications has shrunk to only about 10% of their historic shares, if not less and still falling.

We are now drafting a bill which will restore the American patent system for all inventors -large and small.
