House Judiciary Committee
Subcommittee on Intellectual Property, Competition, and the Internet
Prepared June 7, 2012
- Facebook had no evidence, so they attacked the inventor
- Why should inventors put up with such wasteful, uncreative nonsense perpetrated by attorneys, and a legal profession that is out-of-control?
- If Facebook prevails, the Rules of Evidence in patent cases are thrown out the window;
- American property rights are threatened by this case;
- If Facebook prevails, American inventors should not bother filing for patents, since evidence shows Facebook used Leader’s published patent to further copy the technology;
- The importance of verb tense will degrade our courtrooms to nothing more than three-ring circuses;
- Facebook’s misconduct in this case must come under serious discipline (more than wink, wink, nod, nod);
- The Federal Circuit Opinion was timed suspiciously to coincide with the beginning of Facebook’s IPO roadshow;
- USPTO Director David Kappos issued an illegal remand notice to push Leader’s patent into a reexam for the 4th time, just after his own Examiner’s had affirmed all 35 claims and was opposing the need for another examination. The remand was malformed and included no instructions. The entire episode appears to be motivated by undue political influence and is a blatant harassment of an inventor; and
- Please forward additional phraseology that you use.
Subject Lines – Add your own words after “Subj:” Otherwise, all our messages look the same.
Your Message – Make it yours, from the heart. Let these Congressmen know that us advocates of American property rights are gravely concerned and will not rest until (1) Leader Technologies sees justice, and (2) the serious problems in our justice system that this case has exposed are fixed.
Use Your Telephone Too! – Congressmen and Congresswomen keep track of the phone calls into their offices. Pick up the phone and verbally express your concern to these individuals and ask for their help and advocacy.
