‘USPTO Continues to Reduce Patent Term Adjustments’
Yes, the GATT Treaty has been a landfall for infringers and a Waterloo for inventors. It’s bad enough that we have to fight the PTO to get our patents and now we have to watch as our effective patent terms dwindle and evaporate. Now the PTO can submarine our patents and suck all life from them. We have little we can do except protect what we can as trade secrets and take what we cannot to our graves. The federal government and the PTO are robbing and destroying us.
