The modern issue of inventor patent rights is not about issues involving two different inventors who happen to have invented the same kind of thing at the same time. This is NOT about that!
This is about Google, Facebook, Sony Pictures, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, YouTube and the Silicon Valley tech oligarchs sending their venture capital firms Draper-Fisher, Kleiner Perkins, Andreesson, Greylock and other Palo Alto Sandhill Road tech-mobster spies, around to spy on start-ups and defraud them by pretending to be "considering an investment". Sandhill Road VC's are the spoiled frat boy rich family kids that lived together in fraternity houses down the road at Stanford University. You have heard about all the date rapes at Stanford, right. These Silicon Valley VC's are those
We am concerned about federal reports of large Silicon Valley corporations stealing inventions and lack of access to the legal system for garage inventors and small businesses. Does your Senator intend to co-sponsor the Inventor Rights Act in this Congress?
We understand the United States Patent and Trademark Office is now being pushed into the business of revoking the patent rights of inventors by Silicon Valley Oligarchs. The Patent Trial and Appeal Board is canceling portions of 80-90% of the patents they review. This is disheartening and discouraging to inventors and startups in our community. Please ask your elected officials to support giving inventors the right to have their patent rights decided by a real judge and jury instead of this rogue tribunal? Tell your elected officials to co-sponsor the Inventor Rights Act?
If a big Silicon Valley corporation decides to invalidate my patent it will cost me at least half a million dollars to fight them in the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. Ask your Senator to pass a law that will protect domestic citizen invention from this threat? Tell your elected officials to co-sponsor the Inventor Rights Act?
Josh Malone, the inventor, has said that his court case against Telebrands has cost over $20M. Where is an inventor supposed to get that kind of money? Tell your elected officials to co-sponsor the Inventor Rights Act to restore sanity to our patent system?
Dan Phillips, inventor of the Bionic Wrench, has been fighting Sears in court since 2012. A judge recently tossed out the jury verdict that held Sears liable. I understand his appeal process will take several more years. How can a small business survive if it takes a decade and millions of dollars in legal expense to sort out our intellectual property rights? Tell your elected officials to co-sponsor the Inventor Rights Act
The news says that "China is stealing technology" but in reality it is Google, Facebook, Sony and U.S.-based corporations that are stealing technology from inventors right and left. Google, Apple, Amazon, Telebrands and other big corporations are constantly getting away with profiting from pirated products. Tell your elected officials to co-sponsor the Inventor Rights Act to put an end to this and reinvigorate the famous American innovation system?
The American Dream is based on small inventors building the future in their garages but if the Silicon Valley Oligarchs and their K-Street lobbyists are spending over 100 billion dollars to kill that dream; then what do we have left?
