The Eunuch Patent Office

On average, it takes about 3-4 years and costs about $5000 to obtain a patent from the Patent Office, from filing of the application to the granting of the patent. However, a patent issued by the Patent Office guarantees nothing, in violation of the Constitutional Provision (ART. 1, SEC.8, CL.8):

Instead, Congress, responding to its corporate paymasters, has neutered the Patent Office by enacting statute 35 USC 282 which allows a party to challenge the validity of a patent in federal court. Few issued patents survive in court. For example, one source studied 14 cases brought by pro per inventors; 13 lost their patents and were heavily sanctioned, and some went bankrupt1.
