The Part -- You May Not Like
The Bad Part
Prior to the time when Clinton signed the GATT treaty, the patent terms on a utility type invention was 17 years of ownership, monopoly, and protection granted for the inventor from the time the patent was granted. That meant that the term didn't start ticking away until after the patent pending period and the patent was granted. The patent pending process usually took two to three years, (the time from when the patent applications were filed to the time the patents were granted,) before the term would start to tick away. The GATT treaty changed the terms to 20 years from the time the application is filed. Therefore: the clock is ticking as soon as the application is filed and during the patent pending process.
The USPTO has their own definition
Since the clock is ticking as soon as a pending application has been filed; the thought
of corporations supplementing the private inventors as an effort to get the
clock ticking is almost none existent. Instead of helping an inventor during
the patent pending process, they are prone to make sure the inventor can't
afford a patent attorney during the patent pending process and if they can;
they will buy-off the patent attorneys, just to sabotage the inventor's ability
to secure a patent.
Although we're more than a pack of animals, we should to think about the natural selection part of the existence of all living things. Natural selection has been taught in biology classes as by the way the weak, ill, and confused get eliminated by their natural predators. The strong and brightest are known to be the natural breeders that keep the species in existence.
Consider this: About 1/3 of the patent applications are filed by private inventors and from my knowledge the numbers come to about 200,000 patent applications are filed by private inventors every year; in the US alone. The success rate of a patented inventions actually making it to market and being profitable is around 3-5%.
Since private inventors don't have as much funding as the large corporations have; it's my guess that the private inventors don't file on every little thing they come up -- with just to crowd an area where a discovery might take place at a later time -- as many corporations are known to do. It's my estimation that -- in the market place -- the success rate for inventions patented by corporations is about 3% or less. Since the private inventors have less funding, they are less likely to file on an invention that is unlikely to generate profits in return. Therefore the inventions patented by private inventors are more likely to have a higher success rate of 5 to 10% in the market place.
We should think about the danger the private inventors are in because of the way the GATT treaty changed the patent terms. If only half of the private inventors with patents pending on inventions that would be successful in the market place are getting knocked off. Then the number of the private inventors ending up dead may be around 5% or let's say 10,000 every year. They are the guys like Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, and Albert Einstein, disappearing from this earth every day. Think: 10,000 divided by 365.
Those numbers show that over 27 private inventors could be dropping dead every day. Now I have to admit those numbers may be a bit exaggerated, but the underground has done some research and determined it's probably a lower number like around 2% to 3%. But another factor to consider is what was brought to my attention by a lady whom I was once discussing these numbers with one day. She said she knew of a whole family that had disappeared because of an invention.
I figure their must be about a dozen inventors dying each day. And with their spouse and 2.2 kids disappearing along with them; that would put it right about 50 people possessing excellent gene pools vanishing from the human race each day. With less than a 2.5 % death ratio, the deaths that may accrue because of the way the patent terms are set up comes to over 18,250 every year. Then divide that by the amount of people who died in New York on 9-11. Yeah, an easy 10 times the amount. Or you could say another 911 every 6 to 8 weeks. Yet we'll go to war over such a few and kill more in doing so. The media knows all this too well, but you'll have to remember that the media is sponsored by the corporations that are doing the killing.
So when that guy from Ford comes on your TV, speaking about saving lives, just remember how many people had to die because of cheep tires.
These inventors and their families are the top notch thinkers of this world and I consider them the front of the pack of human beans that we are. If we continue to kill these people, we will learn that we have selective bread the human race and become dumber by the day. No matter how much we spend on education, the loss of the valuable gene pool with good common sense can't be reversed.
You may think that it means you'll be one up on the next guy, but you'll still have to wonder if your daughter will bring home a moron. We the human race can either become extinct because of the selective breeding, or just a bunch of babbling idiots.
They say that
we only use 10% of our brains potential. Well I for one have always wonder why
we don't use more of it. I feel we should be striving to use at least 12% to
15% of its potential by now. But if we keep killing off the smart people, I
fear we'll be lucky to be using 7% of our brains.
You may be wondering just as I, as to how many inventors have died because of the countries that have had the GATT treaty since the late forties. Well the answer would have to be -- Too many. On the positive side, we have to realize that a private inventor in a country other than the United States would have known that the US has been considered to be the largest marketplace for most inventions. Therefore even if the inventor was a citizen of a country other than the US, that inventor would have likely filed an application in the US as a higher priority when compared to applying for a patent their own country. The way the US patent laws were setup, there was motivation to help those inventors get funding and a patent granted in their name. The way I look at it is that the US patent laws were their safe haven, but since Clinton signed the GATT treaty, many of those inventors who would have been saved are dropping dead. I'm sure many have died because of the GATT treaty in the past fifty years, but now the problem is worse than ever. We must do something about it and save ourselves from our own stupidity.
And of course, most of us want someone else to do something about it. This news letter may not be what you expected to read about, but when I invented the world's greatest work truck, I didn't expect I'd be living a box and spreading this pathetic news ten years later.
I hope you weren't one of those people who expected me to humor you with my truck, because I feel that there isn't anything funny about it.
David Dunbar Buick, who invented the overhead valve engine, got mixed up with GM, and at 75 years of age, he couldn't even afford a phone.
Regardless if you were able to comprehend this material or not; please don't be one of those people who try to tell me I'm full of crap or try to insult my intelligence. Because you just might make me feel like smacking you one and my hands are too damn valuable to be messing up on an idiot. But then again; if telling me that I'm crazy will make you feel good, go ahead and do so -- because it will only make me feel better knowing you're not driving my truck because that would really be crazy.
In the US prior to the GATT treaty; or should I say signed on to the WTO (World Trade Organization,) the patent terms on a utility type invention was 17 years of ownership, monopoly, and protection granted for the inventor from the time the patent was granted. That meant that the term didn't start ticking away until after the patent pending period and the patent was granted. The patent pending process usually took two to three years, (the time from when the patent applications were filed to the time when the patent was granted,) before the term would start to tick away. The GATT treaty changed the terms to 20 years from the time the application is filed. Therefore: the clock is ticking as soon as the application is filed and during the patent pending process when there isn't any protection that would guaranty return for investment.
Since the clock is ticking as soon as a pending application has been filed; the thought of corporations supplementing the private inventors as an effort to get the clock ticking is almost none existent. Instead of helping an inventor during the patent pending process, industries are prone to make sure an inventor can't afford a patent attorney during the patent pending process and sabotage one's ability to secure a patent.The ITO failed in 1950 but GATT Treaty survived became know as the WTO (World trade organization.) in 1994.

"We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people."
A realization came to me once one of these guys who fallow me around with phoney rumors mentioned the term, "character assassination."
