‘Congress shouldn’t wait for a pending Federal Trade Commission
investigation into patent troll practices before passing legislation,
commissioner Julie Brill said today’

Brill has been duped or doped.

“patent troll”

infringers and their paid puppets’ definition of ‘patent troll’:

anyone who sues us for stealing their invention

All this talk about patent trolls is just spin control by
large infringers and their paid puppets to cover up their theft.

The patent system now teeters on the brink of lawlessness. Call it
what you will…Patent Assertion Entities, 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. 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. To infringers the only
patents that are legitimate are their own -if they have any. Meanwhile,
the huge multinationals ship more and more US jobs overseas.

It’s about property rights. They should not only be for the rich and
powerful -campaign contributors. Our founders: Jefferson, Franklin,
Madison and others felt so strongly about the rights of inventors that
they included inventors rights to their creations and discoveries in the
Constitution. They understood the trade off. Inventors are given a
limited monopoly and in turn society gets the benefits of their
inventions (telephone, computer, airplane, automobile, lighting, etc)
into perpetuity and the jobs the commercialization of those inventions
bring. For 200 years the patent system has not only fueled the US
economy, but the world’s. If we weaken the patent system, we force
inventors underground like Stradivarius (anyone know how to make a
Stradivarius violin?) and in turn weaken our economy and job creation.
Worse yet, we destroy the American dream -the ability to prosper from
our ingenuity for the benefit of our families and communities. To kill
or weaken the patent system is to kill all our futures. Show me a
country with weak or ineffective property rights and I’ll show you a
weak economy with high unemployment. If we cannot own the product of our
minds or labors, what can we be said to truly own. Life and liberty are
fundamentally tied to and in fact based on property rights. Our very
lives are inseparably tied to our property.

Prior to the Supreme Court case eBay v Mercexchange, small entities
had a viable chance at commercializing their inventions. If the
defendant was found guilty, an injunction was most always issued. Then
the inventor small entity could enjoy the exclusive use of his invention
in commercializing it. Unfortunately, injunctions are often no longer
available to small entity inventors because of the eBay decision so we
have no fair chance to compete with much larger entities who are now
free to use our inventions. Essentially, large infringers now have your
gun and all the bullets. Worse yet, inability to commercialize means
those same small entities will not be hiring new employees to roll out
their products and services. And now those same parties who killed
injunctions for small entities and thus blocked their chance at
commercializing now complain that small entity inventors are not
commercializing. They created the problem and now they want to blame
small entities for it. What dissembling! If you don’t like this state of
affairs (your unemployment is running out), tell your Congress member.
Then maybe we can get some sense back into the patent system with
injunctions fully enforceable on all infringers by all patentees, large
and small.

Those wishing to help fight big business giveaways should contact us
as below and join the fight as we are building a network of inventors
and other stakeholders to lobby Congress to restore property rights for
all patent owners -large and small.
