The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) was supposedly created to protect inventors and their patents, yet many inventors have become PTAB Victims.
Included here are links to letters from 19 inventors to senators Tillis and Coons on PTAB injustice.
Inventor rights are guaranteed because of our Constitution and the original Patent Act of 1790. Our rights are being destroyed by Big Tech and Patent Infringers through the America Invents Act of 2011 and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
Article 1 Section 8 Clause 8 in our U.S. Constitution states: “To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries.”
As a result of that clause, Congress enacted the Patent Act of 1790 (1 Stat. 109) on April 10, 1790, about one year after the Constitution was ratified.
US Inventor was founded to support the innovation efforts of the “little guy” inventors, seeking reliable patent rights for developing our inventions, bringing those inventions to a point where they can be commercialized, creating jobs and industries, and promoting continued innovation. In short, we are proponents of “securing for limited times to … inventors the exclusive right to their … discoveries” in order to “promote the progress of Science and Useful arts.” U.S. Const. art. I, § 8, cl. 8. Importantly, our broad experience with the patent system, new technologies, and creating companies, gives us a unique perspective.
