  • mrbobm mrbobm Dear Sir.
    My name is Robert Murray, I am a conceptual designer and holder of several patents.
    I have a plan that would create jobs throughout the U.S.. This plan is based upon harnessing innovation contained within the population. It would require government to protect these ideas and financing to bring them to market. I know several large law firms that could assist in the legal aspects.
    My thinking would run ideas through a protected clearing house to search for similar intellectual properties, then forwarded to design centers for prototyping and testing. Basically assisting the product to market. When products are determined to be profitable the original innovator would have the option to sell the idea to a US company or produce it himself, creating more jobs.
    In this present environment we need the benefits of innovation for the businesses and jobs they will create. Businesses will open, and plant and equipment they will require will be purchased. The money that will purchase American goods and services will provide profits from these small businesses. Businesses that will grow and needing more of everything we produce. We presently have a negative multimillion dollar imbalance of trade. Our cash is flowing out much faster for imported goods. What do we have to sell? Steel, cars, electronics, cloths, shoes, or just about everything you pick up has a foreign origin. Large companies will continue to avail themselves of the cheaper factors of production. The small innovators business is going to them. Business in the US has turned into service based. What do we produce in the US any more, what do we sell to the world to offset our imbalance of trade.
    At one point in recent history Poland was one of the best examples of Capitalism in the world. (Note The Commanding Heights Book, series shown on PBS). When England and the world drove Communism from Poland by assisting Lec Walesa to organize the ship yards, a drastic change occurred. Hundreds of small businesses sprang up. Dress Makers, Shoe Cobblers, Bakers, and so on. Each was making money and putting some into government. Shown in the book The Commanding Heights, also shown on the public broadcasting channel in a three part series, it was Capitalism at its best.
    I have lost a battle with a large off shore corporation that would have enabled me employed many people. My Patent was taken then designed around. I spent three years and became suicidal trying to fight this large corporation. My story is not unique, note 'flash of genus', the movie. Unless you can protect the innovator from the large corporation and make an inexpensive path for evaluation of these ideas, it won't work. I would like the opportunity to discuss my plan to get our economy back on track in a time. The small innovator needs protection and an economical process to get his product to market. The production of these products here in the US would solve the job problem in a few years.

  • Patentdone Patentdone RNT may be a good method for the independent inventors

    There are as many as more than 700,000 applications piled up in the USPTO and it usually takes as long as almost 3 years to grant a patent.
    But, there are inventors who are individuals and could not afford the high amount of the patent fees. They hope to have an examination only after their inventions are sold out.
    These difficulties will get even more huge after the change from the first-to-invent system to the first-to-file system. Because an inventor has to file an application as soon as possible to protect his ideas.
    There is a suggestion made attempted to solve this problem. The method discussed as follows may be called as Revoked-but-Not-Terminated(RNT).


    If a patent application is filed and the filing fees are paid, it could be revoked but not terminated within the period of its life, say, 20 years from the filing date. If a patent is granted, it could be revoked but not terminated. In turn, the applicant or patentee should give a step back. His intellectual rights are not protected during the period being revoked. Anyone may utilize the invention during that period without paying the roylty fees at any time.
    For example, if an inventor has filed an application and paid the filing fees, but he does not find a buyer and does not have an examination until 5 years later from the filing date, then the application is revoked during this period, anyone may utilize the invention freely during those 5 years and do not have to pay anything even after the patent is granted.
    If the patent is issued 6 years later from the filing date, and tends to not sell well, the patentee may not pay the maintenance fees. And the patent is roylty free until the patentee paid 7.5 years after grant when he sees the patent tends to sell well.
    As a result, many of the applications shall find it out that it is not in a hurry to be examined at all. Thus the patent office will free tension greatly and it will take a much quicker speed to examine the applications really in a hurry.
    Also, for one especially an indepent inventor who could not afford the patent fees, he could wait until he has sold out his invention to start an exmaination or have a lawyer to help.

  • MichaelCaldwell Michael Caldwell PROUD AMERICAN INVENTOR'S STATEMENT:

    RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ARE SO IMPORTANT.. IT TAKES SO LONG TO GET THE DEVICES/INVENTIONS DONE & IS SO DIFFICULT TO DEVELOP NEW PRODUCTS...

    ' IF IT WERE EASY EVERYONE WOULD BE DOING IT' I Have To Just Keep Telling Myself That & Telling Myself That It Will Eventually Pay Off In A Big Way..This Is How I Stay Focused & Stay Confident ! ! !

    'IT'S NOT EASY & I KNOW IT'S NOT..BUT I ALSO KNOW THIS..SOMEONE HAS TO DO IT'

    IF AMERICAN INVENTORS STOPPED INVENTING...PROGRESS WOULD STOP...A BETTER FUTURE FOR AMERICA WOULD STOP ! ! !

    Stay Cool, Michael V. Caldwell, Proud American Inventor Who Is;

    Always Striving To Be Part Of The Solution, Using Americandoo Attitude, Team Work, Common Sense & Mutual Respect As My Guidelines To Follow At All Times ! ! !
