American innovation is under attack
WE ARE COMMITTED TO RESTORING INNOVATION
Our founders knew that to create a strong economy and protect our national security, the United States would need a robust patent system. So, they implemented Article 1 Section 8 Clause 8 into the United States Constitution.
For nearly 200 years, our country led the world in innovation, establishing new, key technologies and leading industry standards.
Unfortunately, in the past 20 years, recent legislation and court decisions have harmed the patent system in ways that now threaten our role as a leader in innovation, threaten our national security, and threaten our economic stability.
It is our mission at US Inventor to restore innovation in the US by establishing a strong patent system once again. A small business or inventor should have the ability to stop the theft of their patented invention regardless of how powerful the corporation is. All of the activities of US Inventor are aligned to accomplish this mission.
“The patent system fueled the greatest economic expansion in the history of man,” Paul states, “propelling America to lead the world in every technology revolution from potash processing to smartphones.”
US Inventor is born
Inventor and entrepreneur Paul Morinville‘s aspirations of achieving both the Inventor’s Dream and the American Dream were cut short by the America Invents Act of 2011 (AIA) and establishment of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), aka the “Patent Death Squad.” He has been advocating for Inventor Rights and changes to our U.S. Patent System to protect inventors since October, 2013.
US Inventor, a 501(c)(4) non-profit corporation, was founded by Paul on March 17, 2015, to first put a stop to the Innovation Act. Once accomplishing that seemingly formidable task, Paul realized there was further destruction of our once mighty patent system that needed to be fixed – and prevented. He was joined in his efforts by fellow inventor Randy Landreneau and others who knew this legislation would be of great benefit to Big Tech, multi-national corporations and China by providing even less protection to actual inventors. Through countless informational meetings with legislators, and other actions taken, the Innovation Act was defeated.
A NATIONAL MOVEMENT
Since that time, US Inventor has worked tirelessly to push through legislation and administrative changes to protect independent inventors and innovative small businesses and startups.
We’re not stopping until the job is done.
DETERMINED TO FIX WHAT HAS BEEN BROKEN
US Inventor has worked tirelessly to push through legislation and administrative changes to protect independent inventors and innovative small businesses and startups.
AND WE NEED TO RESTORE THE AMERICAN DREAM
WE PUT IN THE WORK, GO THE DISTANCE, AND CREATE CHANGE
We ran multiple campaigns, and protests. Created national awareness of a problem that was unknown. We got attention from the media, and walk the halls of Congress to personally meet with Senators and Representatives, Legislators, and were able to stop, and introduce legislation.
