What are inventor rights? Why is the patent system being changed? How will this affect independent inventors?
These questions are answered in a special report developed by Stephen Paul Gnass throughout the period between 1988 and 1992. This report is still as relevant today as it was when it was written.
It provides a historical perspective in regards to the founding father's creation of the U.S. patent laws. In addition, it explains when and how the grassroots efforts to protect the U.S. patent laws were started by the small business and invention communities.
It is also a great foundation for understanding the current proposed patent changes. While the specific bills in Congress, as well as some of the Congressmen and government officials may be different today, the overall theme of dismantling the core basis of the U.S. patent system by pretty much the same group of corporate entities and lawyers remains the same.
