Leahy has shown clearly that he believes big business is the source of innovation in our economy. He showed his belief by not including independent inventors and start-ups in his Judiciary Committee's line-up of witnesses and testimony in creating the bill.

Leahy seems to have little need for dissent or facts. We inventors and the start-ups we power create most of the new jobs in America. It is our efforts that make the iPhones, iPads, Googles, Facebooks, Televisions, DNA sequencers and many, many other core items of modern life possible and affordable.

Leahy's bill will injure us, and add to the difficulty and insult that means each year there are fewer and fewer start-ups and individual inventors submitting patents to the USPTO. This is fact, not the wishful thinking that Leahy tries to present as fact.

Individual inventors and the smallest R&D groups REJECT S23 "The Patent Reform Act of 2011"! Americans who care about restoring our economy should join us to send a message to congress.

"Leahy 's patent reform legislation favors multinational companies, foreign firms and market incumbents"

They could be nothing else as Leahy refused testimony by small entities. This is not patent reform. Rather, it is paid legislation -legislation that will help large corporations maintain their monopolies and kill their small entity and startup competitors and with them the jobs they would have created. According to recent studies by the Kauffman Foundation and economists at the U.S. Census Bureau,“startups aren’t everything when it comes to job growth. They’re the only thing.” This bill is a wholesale slaughter of US jobs.

Just because they call it “reform” doesn’t mean it is. Patent reform is a fraud on America.

"Senator" Leahy has shown clearly that he believes big business is the source of innovation in our economy. He rejecting to recognize that all present time technologies come as the inventions from the individual invetors of the past and the present time. He sipports the bill S23, which is actually corruption of the best in the world patents system as we have in US. He supports multinational/global corporations to alowe them to rubb/still our IP and patents system and transfer them for free as infrigemtns to China or other oversees countries... He showed his belief by not including independent inventors and start-ups in his Judiciary Committee's line-up of witnesses and testimony in creating the bill. Leahy seems to have little need for dissent or facts. He has no respect to our great American's inventors and their achivements... He has no respects to our economy, which badly needs recovery! He serves globalists and suporting our economy collaps instate of recovery... and he rejecting to knowledge this objective facts! He is NOT a good senator, he is NOT a good American and he suppouse to be removed from the Senate by his constutuences! We inventors and the start-ups we power create most of the new jobs in America. It is our efforts that make the iPhones, iPads, Googles, Facebooks, Televisions, DNA sequencers and many, many other core items of modern life possible and affordable. Leahy's bill will injure us, and add to the difficulty and insult that means each year there are fewer and fewer start-ups and individual inventors submitting patents to the USPTO. This is fact, not the wishful thinking that Leahy tries to present as fact. Individual inventors and the smallest R&D groups REJECT S23 "The Patent Reform Act of 2011"! Americans who care about restoring our economy should join us to send a message to congress. This S23 Bill which Leahy and his comrades calls "The Patent Reform Act of 2011" is truthfully the Deform of the Patent system and against our economy and recovery! If it passes will costs America and its people dearly... They must be STOPED to what the try to do on us the Americans please!
