TypePad HTML Email What is lunacy is how our so called representatives run a protection racket where whomever hands them the most cash gets their legislative agenda passed. While small entities can still get patents, very few will be able to handle the new costs imposed by AIA when big business challenges their patents. AIA was written by and for transnational invention thieves so that they can bankrupt inventors and their small businesses. Anyone who claims that AIA will create jobs is either a fool or a liar. Clearly, congress and academia have both in spades. Ronald J.

Prior User Rights are a huge windfall for big companies to commit fraud. Every infringer will manufacture evidence that they are a prior user. In fact, all of AIA was designed to facilitate big business theft of inventions. They claim that AIA will create jobs and they are right. Transnational corporations will take American ingenuity to the same places they have been exporting jobs. They will use AIA to create jobs outside America. AIA was the second bailout, representing a staggering loss of new job creation and prosperity, a loss which dwarfs what the sleazy banks already caused. Since only big companies will now be able to enforce patents they will no longer have to worry about some upstart coming along and displacing them. The whole point of AIA was to transfer invention based new wealth creation from people to big companies. It is a job killer, at least in America. Walmart serves as an example of what we can expect our future to be like. They make a killing while workers make peanuts. That is the new world order under AIA. Ronald J.

The letter, pdf download. http://docs.piausa.org/i4i/171%20Companies%20Sign%20Letter%20to%20Attorney%20General-20101222.pdf Patent rip-off artists are ganging up on inventors. I am asking once again that all inventors, small business, academics and anyone else who values our patent system to sign i4i's letter. If the burden of proof is lowered most patents will be worthless. Large transnational corporations are incredibly shortsighted and totally devoid of ethics. Their attempt to change the burden of proof will be disastrous for both inventors and competitiveness. This change would allow foreign interests, often backed by their governments (China, India, etc.) to easily invalidate patents.

"Sounds to me like we have someone with an incredibly biased, partisan attitude (obs. based also in part on your adjacent post)." Posted by someone too chickens*** to be associated with what they have to say. And from their mindset, I would say a corporate stooge who has probably never had a creative thought in their life. America has an underlying competitiveness problem and the only fix for that is patent protected inventions. Big companies file lots of patents mostly on very minor improvements. They surely cannot fix the competitiveness problem. Meanwhile, independent, academic and small business inventors produce most of the important stuff. The problem is that crooked transnational companies and their stooges steal their work. Now we have those transnational companies moving jobs right and left out of America and we have those same companies stealing inventions and moving the benefits and profits they represent out of the country. How can America be competitive if we allow the inventions which would be the basis of new job creation and decent profit out of America? boiled_in_HOT-HOT-HOT_Baboooon does not seem to realize that excessive parasitic activity kills the host and without an influx of new inventions his-her-its job would evaporate.

"I've had suits in EDTX and in CDCA (but not in NDCA), and I can tell you there are indeed substantial differences as between the first 2 venues, at least in my limited experience." Sounds to me like we have a sore loser. Here is something to really show you up. Texas has greatly benefited from both their court's patent expertise and the venue issue. Now inventors have a very good reason to flock to Texas and set up housekeeping there. I predict that this will lead to a new silicon valley situation and prosperity for certain regions of Texas. This is incredibly funny, unintended consequences. Ronald J. Riley, Speaking only on my own behalf.

"Namely, the win-rate in the Eastern District of Texas might be lower than Delaware because of the cases filed there. I.e., patentees with low-quality patents might be more likely to flock to Texas rather than Delaware. " Unadulterated bunk, which is not a surprise considering Lemley's business connections. Inventors like the Eastern District of Texas because the court does not tolerate the kinds of delaying tactics which patent pirating large companies like to use to bankrupt independent inventors. They know that if they can delay judgment day long enough that they will get away with larceny on the grandest of scales. No one risks millions of dollars on a patent they think is low quality. The reason that companies lose so many cases in the Eastern District of Texas is that only the best cases make it to court. I believe that for every case which has its day in court that those whose business model is based on intentional infringement get away with stealing at least one order of magnitude more from less fortunate inventors than what they are forced to pay for by the courts.

Invention is a domestic industry and if foreign or domestic patent pirating companies are allowed to misappropriate inventions in their infancy it is inevitable that the business which the inventions would span will be stillborn. Most certainly systematic theft of small entity inventions is a huge industry which kills job creation in America. Ronald J. Riley, Speaking only on my own behalf.

""John Doll is Fantastic. I really like him." In addition to being well versed in patent law, Doll understands the operation of every part of the Patent Office." Someone is kissing up to Doll. From an independent inventor's perspective the best thing which could happen is for Doll to be tossed out of the agency. He is a classic bureaucrat operating on the basis that what makes life good for the bureaucrats is best even if the underlying mission of the agency is destroyed. The USPTO exists to promote progress, not to make cushy jobs for people like Doll. Doll's agenda would destroy America's invention culture. It would make the patent system a sport of kings and exclude small entity inventors who represent over thirty percent of domestic patents and well over ninety percent of job creation. If we are going to overcome our current economic woes it will be small entity inventors who save the day. Anyone in the patent office who cozies up to disreputable patent pirating transnational corporations needs to be sent packing !! Ronald J. Riley, Speaking only on my own behalf.
