When a father of eight invents the "Toy of The Year" He hopes his invention will bring financial security to his family. But, his genius idea is stolen!
Thrust into a battle to save his invention he uncovers the shocking truth that intellectual property rights are at risk and American innovation is dying.
Patent Reform Issues For USPTO Director Andrei Iancu And The Voters To Address -
The modern issue of inventor patent rights is NOT about issues involving two different inventors who happen to have thought of the same kind of thing at the same time. This is NOT about that!
This is about Google, Facebook, Sony Pictures, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, YouTube and the Silicon Valley tech oligarchs sending their venture capital firms Draper-Fisher, Kleiner Perkins, Andreesson, Greylock and other Palo Alto Sandhill Road tech-mobster spies, around to spy on start-ups and defraud them by pretending to be "considering an investment".
The NVCA VC's pretend to be interested, get your technology data in their pretend "due diligence reviews", copy everything you have, pass it over to their "on staff entrepreneur, change the name and then launch it as their start-up or roll it our as a facade company under the Alphabet or other Google sham operations. Every VC on Sandhill Road appears to be scum! They will smile at you and shake your hand while they rob you blind with the other hand. At the same time they steal your idea they will have the media companies and tabloids that they own run a smear job campaign against the inventor in order to damage the inventors credibility to testify against the oligarchs. The oligarchs hire Google/Youtube, Gawker, Gizmodo, Jalopnik and Fusion GPS to character assassinate the inventor globally to reduce the ability of the inventor to fight back.
Sandhill Road VC's are the spoiled frat boy rich family kids that lived together in fraternity houses down the road at Stanford University. You have heard about all the date rapes at Stanford, right? These Silicon Valley VC's are those same frat boys that went "up-the-hill" after they left the Stanford campus. They raped co-eds in college and then they just moved a few blocks up the street to rape American inventors in their NVCA Cartel.
These tech-mobsters bribe U.S. Senators and run technology monopolies with impunity. These Cartel operators spy, steal and cover-up. They then blockade you from ever getting to court and use their monopoly control of most law firms and K-Street lobbyists to use your technology without ever paying for it. If you don't know what a Washington, DC "K-Street Lobbyist" does then watch the feature film called: "Miss Sloane" starring Jessica Chastain. K-Street Lobbyists will stoop to any crime to get their big paychecks from Google, Facebook and Sony Pictures.
In Silicon Valley there is a Cartel of “Venture Capitalists” who like to call entrepreneurs in, examine their technologies in ‘fishing expeditions’, say “we can’t see any use for it”, copy the technology and launch it themselves; after black-listing the entrepreneur. That is their “playbook.” The New York Times released an article (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/24/technology/larry-page-google-founder-is-still-innovator-in-chief.html
) describing how Google’s bosses covertly skulk around at tech parties in order to snatch technologies from unsuspecting entrepreneurs. The new start-up hopeful in Silicon Valley must watch for these technology raiders with a cautious eye. Google, in fact, put their lawyer in charge of the U.S. Patent Office and spent nearly a hundred million dollars lobbying to try to “outlaw” small American inventors because Google is so afraid of eventually having to pay for all of the tech it poor all of the tech it poached. Kleiner Perkins, Greylock Capital, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, and 90% of the Silicon Valley ‘VC’s’ on Palo Alto’s Sandhill Road have engaged in this ‘idea rape’ intellectual property theft and clone effort. Facebook, Google, YouTube, and other big name companies, were poached from small start-ups that had the original versions up and running when Silicon Valley VC’s just came by and copied them without ever paying the inventors.
The public is concerned about federal reports of large Silicon Valley corporations stealing inventions and lack of access to the legal system for garage inventors and small businesses. Does your Senator intend to co-sponsor the Inventor Rights Act in this Congress?
We understand the United States Patent and Trademark Office is now being pushed into the business of revoking the patent rights of inventors by Silicon Valley Oligarchs. The Patent Trial and Appeal Board is canceling portions of 80-90% of the patents they review. This is disheartening and discouraging to inventors and startups in our community. Please ask your elected officials to support giving inventors the right to have their patent rights decided by a real judge and jury instead of this rogue tribunal? Tell your elected officials to co-sponsor the Inventor Rights Act?
If a big Silicon Valley corporation decides to invalidate my patent it will cost me at least half a million dollars to fight them in the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. Ask your Senator to pass a law that will protect domestic citizen invention from this threat? Tell your elected officials to co-sponsor the Inventor Rights Act?
Josh Malone, the inventor, has said that his court case against Telebrands has cost over $20M. Where is an inventor supposed to get that kind of money? Tell your elected officials to co-sponsor the Inventor Rights Act to restore sanity to our patent system?
Dan Phillips, inventor of the Bionic Wrench, has been fighting Sears in court since 2012. A judge recently tossed out the jury verdict that held Sears liable. I understand his appeal process will take several more years. How can a small business survive if it takes a decade and millions of dollars in legal expense to sort out our intellectual property rights? Tell your elected officials to co-sponsor the Inventor Rights Act
The news says that "China is stealing technology" but in reality it is Google, Facebook, Sony and U.S.-based corporations that are stealing technology from inventors right and left. Google, Apple, Amazon, Telebrands and other big corporations are constantly getting away with profiting from pirated products. Tell your elected officials to co-sponsor the Inventor Rights Act to put an end to this and reinvigorate the famous American innovation system?
There is no such thing as a "Patent Troll". This is a term created by Silicon Valley's K-Street lobbyists FOR Google, Facebook and the Palo Alto Mafia. Again referring to the feature film: "Miss Sloane", the term "Patent Troll: was created by people like "Miss Sloane" in order to remove all the rights from people like Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla. It is part of a mass political behavior modification effort to make the public think that dark evil forces are helping inventors. Inventors hire, or partner with, patent monetization firms to help them fight against Google, Facebooks and other oligarchs massive IP thefts.
The American Dream is based on small inventors building the future in their garages but if the Silicon Valley Oligarchs and their K-Street lobbyists are spending over 100 billion dollars to kill that dream; then America's core asset, the nation's individual inventors, are being erased from our society?
