‘virtually all of the reform today only…protecting accused infringers and weakening patent rights’

http://www.ipwatchdog.com/2015/12/08/patent-reform-should-protect-inventors-too/id=63665/

‘“patent reform,” by itself, is misleading, because virtually all of the reform today only improves the patent system in one direction: protecting accused infringers and weakening patent rights.’

Weakening property rights is fundamentally unAmerican and a disgrace. Should property rights only be for the wealthy and politically well connected?

‘litigation explosion produced a political backlash’

‘The effects of the litigation explosion were profound. The rise of large-scale patent assertion provides a new explanation for patent law’s crucial shift from common law to equity decision making in the middle of the nineteenth century. And at its height, the litigation explosion produced a political backlash that threatened to sweep away the patent system as we know it.’

In the 1800’s Samuel Morse’s telegraph company created enemies with the newspapers of the day as they were unhappy with the rates he charged, or perhaps that they had to pay anything. The newspapers used their papers to dupe the public and government and turned them against Morse and the patent system. The same approach is being used today by powerful and influential large Chinese and multinational corps to use public relations and media in an effort to weaken or destroy the patent system so they can rob and crush their small competitors.

Also, because of recent changes in patent law inventors are now required to file separate cases for each infringer whereas before they could and would commonly include tens or more in a single case. Those who make these unsupported accusations about an explosion do not factor that in and thereby intentionally mislead. While the number of case may be up, inventors and their attorneys will tell you the number of defendants has plunged. Prior to AIA in 2011 the number of cases filed was consistently about 3000 per year. That the number of cases is only now about 5000 per year supports that contention. It is now far more expensive, lengthy and difficult for us to get and enforce our patent rights.

Don’t fall for the lies of thieves.

‘cases were filed by shell companies’

http://fortune.com/2015/12/02/patent-lawsuit-record/

‘The majority of the 257 cases were filed by shell companies, known pejoratively as “patent trolls,” whose only business is to demand payments from productive companies’

It’s not about shells -it’s about shills. It appears the author of this completely one sided piece is one such.

Call it what you will…patent hoarder, patent troll, non-practicing entity, shell company, etc. It all means one thing: “we’re using your invention and we’re not going to stop or pay”. It’s a pure red herring by large invention thieves and their paid puppets to kill any inventor support system. Their goal is to legalize theft. For the last several years now they have been ransacking and looting small entities taking everything they can carry. The fact is, many of the large multinationals and their puppets who defame inventors in this way themselves make no products in the US or create any American jobs and it is their continued blatant theft which makes it impossible for the true creators to do so. Invention thieves well know many inventors lack the resources to enforce their patent rights so their only recourse is to sell to others who do have the resources. Otherwise, large invention thieves just thumb their noses at you and steal at will. To infringers the only patents that are legitimate are their own -if they have any. Meanwhile, the huge multinationals ship more and more American’s jobs overseas.

‘there are a handful of bad actors’

http://www.ipwatchdog.com/2015/11/30/bullied-patent-owner-more-widespread-patent-troll/id=63532/

‘Those in the industry are well aware that there are a handful of bad actors on the patent owner side’

Says who? Inventors will tell you even that is a distortion -certainly when it comes to small entities. They rely on contingent firms to enforce their rights. Those law firms will go through your patent with a fine toothed comb. If they don’t believe in it, they will not take your case. It’s that simple.

In the highly unlikely event they do the courts these days have a quick trigger to dismiss weak cases and will even sanction the parties at fault. No attorney is going to risk that. So this contrived argument of abuse by patentees is a ruse by large invention thieves to cover up their theft and justify what they call patent ‘reform’.

Don’t believe the lies of Chinese and giant multinational thieves. Make them prove it.

‘So the backlog is coming down…’

http://www.iam-media.com/blog/Detail.aspx?g=fbab43a9-1174-40f5-a960-8d3067807030

Sure, for large corps. If one looks at the issued patents you will routinely find that for large corps patents often issue in under 3 years, but for small entities and inventors it takes 5 or more. Inventors will tell you there is bias in the system. We would pull data from the PTO web site, but it is so poorly constructed and managed that the info is not obtainable. One has to wonder if even the PTO KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON. Inventors will tell you they either don’t care, or are covering up the true state of the system. We need an end to the revolving door in PTO management from large infringers with more transparency and accountability.

‘create a new protected class – a giant corporation ‘

http://patentlyo.com/patent/2015/11/welcome-thanksgiving-break.html

‘Is the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (“CAFC”) permitted to create a new protected class – a giant corporation – to take private property for public use without any compensation to the inventor…’

Many inventors will tell you SCOTUS, perhaps to a lesser extent the CAFC, many district courts, the PTO, Congress and the White House have protected large infringers. That certainly has been the end result of their actions -so much so that the patent system is now a mockery. The promises made and guaranteed in the Constitution are now hollow and patents are, when you can get them, worthless -even for large corporations. What a mess they have made of things following the lead of large invention thieves and their paid puppets -some in Congress sitting in committees.

‘we faced the tough choice of defending ourselves against the frivolous patent claim ‘

http://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/technology/261352-patent-reform-must-level-playing-field-for-small-businesses

‘As a result, we faced the tough choice of defending ourselves against the frivolous patent claim and risking incurring millions in legal fees, devastating a company just getting on its feet. What makes this experience even more frustrating is that we invested heavily in the development of our own patent explicitly covering our business and products…’

If that is true, then all you have to do is notify the plaintiff and they will cut you lose or risk penalties from the court. These days courts are very quick to dismiss patent suits brought which even hint at being frivolous.

Don’t believe the lies of thieves. Just because they call it ‘reform’ doesn’t mean it is. Chances are if you lift the rock this defendant is sitting on you will find the same large multinational invention thieves at work -crawling to a dark corner. This is likely a window dressing ‘small entity’ used for affect. If not, a thief is a thief no matter the size.
