Silicon Valley Billionaires Have Bought The U.S. Patent Office In Order To End American Innovation on behalf of their greed!
In the last two years, the U.S. Patent office has been changed more than in all of American History. The result of these changes is to destroy American innovation in order to buffer up the greed of Silicon Valley Billonaires.
The billionaires don’t want to pay inventors. They want to be able to take whatever they want without any consequences.
Silicon Valley Billionaires have bribed elected officials, with “revolving doors”, insider-trading stock, campaign funding, junkets, and more…, to change the laws and rules of the U.S. Patent Office.
They disguise the bought-and-paid-for rule/law clamp-down under the cover story of the phrase: “patent reform” and “troll shutdown” but this is just a lobbyist trick of semantics.
They have hired hundreds of east indian IT meat puppets and blogger trolls to seek to tell the public that “patent trolls are bad” because they don’t want to pay the righful inventors of the technologies they use to exploit the public, spy and data-mine citizens.
Demand a roll-back to the rules and regulations that supported inventors, domestic innovation and American growth before they kill off the last great asset of America: It’s creativity and innovation!

The So Called “Innovation Act” Is the Worst Anti-Innovation Bill in American History

Recently, Rockstar Bidco sued Google and seven other manufacturers of Android smart phones for infringing patents it bought for $4.5 billion from bankrupt Nortel. A former in-house patent counsel for Intel, Peter Detkin, who coined the term “patent troll,” defined it as someone who acquires for the purposes of litigation a patent they did not invent and do not practice. Rockstar seems to be a perfect example of a “patent troll” − they bought the patents they did not invent and do not…

We Americans have a love-hate relationship with patents. We can’t live with them, and we can’t live without them. Everybody wants to reform the patent system. After many years of contentious debate, in 2011, the America Invents Act (AIA) was signed into law. Alas, this Act did not help America to invent anything! Nor was it ever intended to do that. It was pork-belly legislation written by lobbyists on the payroll of Microsoft, Cisco and other tech giants whose only goal was to weaken our patent system by making…
A former chief judge of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit called for attorneys to get more involved in the debate over how to control patent trolls because litigators have an “abysmal” understanding of patent law. Speaking at a forum on nonpracticing entity litigation, Judge Paul Michel said, “Every bar association and IP law association needs to get involved, because that’s where the expertise resides.”
Alexander Poltorak, Founder and Chairman of American Innovators for Patent Reform as well as Chairman and CEO of General Patent Corporation, also attended the event and…
In the past year, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office received 535 petitions challenging patents under two new America Invents Act (AIA) programs. There were 482 requests for inter-partes review (IPR) and 53 for covered business method review (CBM). And the number of filings could double next year, according to an article on Law360.com (subscription required).
And according to a…
Raymond Mercado, a doctoral student in political science at Duke University and the author of “Ensuring the Integrity of Administrative Challenges to Patents: Lessons From Reexamination,” forthcoming in the Columbia Science and Technology Law Review, penned an op-ed in The Hill’s Congress Blog that addresses the danger of putting inventors’ rights at risk in the name of quashing “meritless lawsuits.” (“Inventors deserve equal protection, not…
Alexander Poltorak, the Founder and Chairman of American Innovators for Patent Reform, wrote a letter to the editor of the Wall Street Journal in response to an op-ed piece by Senator Chuck Schumer. The letter was published June 26, 2013 (see “Inventors, Trolls, Patents and Improving the System”).
Dr. Poltorak’s letter explains why the focus on patent trolls is misdirected. However, only a portion of the original letter was published by the Journal. Dr….
