there appeared to be some good news for Susan and her patent. The third-party challenger to her patent rights backed away during the case at the Federal Circuit.
That should have ended it, her accuser dropped it.
Yet, it was definitely not over for Susan and CLIMBUP®.
Attorneys working on behalf of the Director of the US Patent Office, of all people, pursued the case against her patent. The USPTO’s goal was, quite obviously, to remove the patent that they previously issued to her.
How much faith and confidence can someone have in a system that literally destroys the original patent holder and his or her creation in favor of a patent usurper 84% of the time?
Inventor rights are supposed to be protected. Our U.S. Constitution Article I, § 8, Clause 8 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.”
