PATENT REFORM 2011 - VIDEO BRIEFING - House Rep Dana Rohrabacher; Senator Diane Feinstein on Keeping the 200+ U.S. Patent System "First to Invent"
House Rep Dana Rohrabacher gives a Gripping Speech against Patent Reform
Senator Diane Feinstein to Congress on How Changing the 200+ U.S. Patent System from "First to Invent" to "First to File" Will Hurt the U.S.
In this amendment that Senator Diane Feinstein proposed to the Senate, she provides an excellent explanation about how changing the 200+ U.S. Patent System from "First to Invent" to "First to File" will hurt the U.S.
Ironically, she supports all the other issues in Senate Bill S.23 which will hurt independent inventors. Although she supported this amendment to keep our "First to Invent" patent system, sadly the amendment was voted down by the Senate, and even more sadly, then she voted in favor of S. 23 which included the damaging change to a "First to File" system! Senate Bill S. 23 was voted in with a huge margin of 95 "yes" votes to only 5 "no" votes. However, most bills never make it through both the Senate and House, so this should not be discouraging.
The inventors voice has made a difference in the past 40 to 50 or so years that attempts have been made to change our effective "First to Invent" patent system. And you can make a difference now. Be sure to contact your two Senators and House Rep. and let them know your view on this. See the INSTANT ACTION PLAN on how you can do this easily within a few minutes.
