Patents Granted

Credito: Patently-O (pero anotado)

Sumario: Una mirada a la expansión de la esfera de patentes (y permisividad) el los Estados Unidos y lo que realmente puede ser deducido de ella

Una firma de explotación de patentes, Mintz Levin Cohn Ferris Glovsky y Popeo PC, acaba de escribir acerca de “Utilidad de lal Aplicación por Patentes” — materia que tocamos no hace mucho por figuras publicadas porPatently-O.

No hay mucha innovación en esta materia, pero un montón más de patentes cada año (ver el gráfico de arriba), así que uno correctamente puede sospechar que existe una burbuja en fabricación.

“En casi todas las demandas de patentes en los EE.UU.”, dijo la firma de abogados, “el abogado del titular de la patente considera la forma en que el caso podría haber sido facilitada mejor si la patente en cuestión hubiera sido redactada y tramitada de manera diferente. Estas consideraciones demuestran que las patentes deben ser elaboradass y procesadas con vista hacia la posibilidad de un litigio. Ha habido varias decisiones importantes en los casos de patentes que impactan directamente la tramitación de patentes. Este artículo analiza algunas de esas decisiones en orden cronológico para proporcionar sugerencias para un fiscal en la redacción de la patente o el procesamiento de una solicitud de patente”.

Patently-O, mientras tanto, continua escribiéndo acerca de esas patentes y dice: “El siguiente gráfico muestra el número de solicitudes de patentes UPR presentadas en los últimos años fiscales (que se ejecutan 1 de octubre al 30 de septiembre), junto con una simple proyección de las aplicaciones para el año fiscal 2016. La gran mayoría de estos son solicitudes de patentes de utilidad”.

No hay mucha innovación en esta materia, pero un montón más de patentes cada año (ver el gráfico de arriba), así que uno correctamente puede sospechar que existe una burbuja en fabricación. ¿Cuán bueno es un sistema de patentes como la USPTO si hay un inexistente o poquísimo control de calidad? Esta falta de calidad es por eso que muchas empresas terminaron viendo sus patentes de software devaluados después de la decisión Alice, la que afirmó correctamente que muchas patentes de software son abstractas y por lo tanto deben ser considerados válidas. Lo mismo podría decirse de la crisis financiera causada por la falta de control de calidad o indulgentes criterios de holgura (sin rigidez) cuando se trata de hipotecas.

Recuérden que el propósito original del sistema de patetnes fue proveer un incentivo para su publicación a cambio de un monopolio temporario.

Considereneste nuevo comentario de Nicola Searle quien dijo “Mi cerebro empezó a gritar cuando vi” las patentes como un vehículo para la innovación “¿WTF?”

Seguro que molestó a la horda de abogados de patentes, quienes desearían creer que a más aplicaciones por patentes (o más juicios), mejor para ellos y más innovadora la sociedad se volverá.
Recuérden que el propósito original del sistema de patetnes fue proveer un incentivo para su publicación a cambio de un monopolio temporario. A la luz de aquella premisa olvidada por mucho tiempo consideren este nuevo post de Patently-O que dice:

“Hasta ahora, en 2016, la USPTO ha emitido tres patentes que reivindican prioridad pre-GATT. Estos tres son derechos adquiridos en virtud de la duración de la patente de edad de 17 años de de-emisión, ya que se presentaron antes del 8 de junio de 1995.”

Seguro que molestó a la horda de abogados de patentes, quienes desearían creer que a más aplicaciones por patentes (o más juicios), mejor para ellosy más innovadora la sociedad se volverá.

Para dar un ejemplo, vean una patente que fue “presentada en 1973, pero que en virtud de una orden se mantuvo en secreto hasta el año 2010.”
Pues bien, las patentes eran sobre PUBLICACIÓN original. Si ni siquiera están siendo publicados por tantos años, ¿cómo se supone que pensar en la USPTO como un intento de maximizar la innovación (en oposición a maximizar el número de patentes concedidas)?
China, como los EE.UU. (SIPO como la nefasta USPTO), ha bajado la calida de patentes y ahora eso otra Texas con su caos de litigios, basado en aquellos que aman los juicios de patentes (IAM ‘magazine’). Uno sólo puede esperar que Battistelli no se salga con la suya en la EPO y cause daño similar o PEOR en Europa, e.g. con la UPC. Más de ello en nuestro próximo post…

    War must go on; but it'll be more diverse and inclusive

  8. They Always Worked for Microsoft (Directly and Indirectly) and Were Financially Rewarded for That

    Nat and Miguel, now put in charge of new weapons against software freedom (e.g. GitHub and NPM), have long worked for Microsoft (Nat was also an intern there); Techrights was right all along about this pair



  9. Red Hat Betrayed the Free Software Community With Its Software Patents' Stockpiling Drive and Then a Sale to the Biggest Software Patents Lobbyist

    In 2020 Red Hat is little but a shadow of IBM, whose patent policy continues to threaten software freedom and whose lobbying for software patents (under the guise of "HEY HI") persists uninterrupted; this growing problem oughtn't be unspeakable



  10. Politically Correct Tech

    This new video entitled “Politically Correct Tech” covers a topic we’ve spoken a great deal about



  11. [Humour/Meme] High on Production, Stoned on Pseudoscience

    All-time high ‘production’ levels at the European Patent Office (EPO) do not mean what they want people to think and what they try hard to hide



  12. Missing From EPO Management: Actual Scientists

    Political figures and opportunists with connections occupy top positions at top European agencies; this assures self-destructive policies that diminish progress and cushion corruption



  13. All Software Should Come With a Cheat Mode

    Cheat modes are useful for developers because they enable debugging, and are sometimes called "Debug mode"



  14. Linus Torvalds Checks If It's Still Inclusive Enough to 'Bash' Bad Technology (of the Company Whose TPM Pusher Has Just Successfully Pushed to Remove Many Words)

    In the age of endless control of language (e.g. large corporations pushing for "inclusive" language whilst earning billions from bombing of 'inferior' countries) we see that it is still possible to condemn corporations on technical grounds (at least if you’re Linus Torvalds)



  15. Even Before Microsoft Paid ('Joined') the Linux Foundation Jim Zemlin Had a Preference for Microsofters

    Even years before the Linux Foundation was receiving money from Microsoft it had a tendency to hire Microsoft’s people for key positions (a lot of people no longer remember that, but it’s still in the public record; it was Jim Zemlin who approached if not chased Mr. Ramji to offer him the job and the colleagues saw no problem with that)

    More than two years after taking over the European Patent Office (EPO) António Campinos has done absolutely nothing to restore judicial independence of the Boards of Appeal of the EPO



  19. The Systemd Song

    Speak out about IBM's strategy before we're all using GNU/Linux distros 'barcoded' with systemd



  20. Monopoly (or Vendor Lock-in) is Not Modularity

    IBM cannot totally control the kernel, Linux; IBM's control over GNU/Linux may be worth even more than what it paid for Red Hat as that's the key to overpriced support contracts and the general direction of development (important trends such as file systems and various low-level stacks)



  21. The Internet Archive Doesn't Forget, Whereas the Internet and the Web Forget Very Fast

    World Wide Web history is grossly undervalued and preservation of such history (e.g. by the Wayback Machine) is taken for granted by far too many people; the robber barons of today benefit the most from erosion of collective memory as they get to rewrite the past to suit their present and future interests



  22. Environmentalism and Free Software Can be Viewed as Closely Connected and Help One Another

    Modest lifestyles are an overlapping pattern in the Free software community and green activists; there's room for alliances and collaboration, bettering society by reducing consumption and discouraging voyeurism



  23. Free (as in Freedom) Software + Social Control Media ≠ Free Speech

    Speaking through middlemen and private platforms is bad enough (that gives others unjust power over speech); to claim that because the underlying platform is free/libre software it therefore becomes a non-issue is also dishonest



  24. António Campinos: President or Quasi-Autocratic Corporate Puppet?

    The culture of oppression — and censorship of evidence of oppression — is what today’s EPO is all about; the EPO learned how to better avoid (or block) negative publicity without actually changing its ways; and due to unprecedented speech restrictions you won’t hear that from SUEPO



  25. The Media Continues to Ignore Corruption of António Campinos

    António Campinos has Croatian scandals on his lap; the obedient media, however, refuses to even talk about it (or uses COVID as an excuse to write nothing on the subject, as some journalists have told us)



  26. A Call for Patent Sanity

    The public's call for reform is motivated by improved understanding of today's debased patent system and how out-of-order (detached from its original mission statement) it has gotten; patent maximalism, if it does not completely unravel this whole system, severely discredits it



  27. Declassified US Army Field Manuals Explain Microsoft's Public Relations Strategy (Similar to Selling Imperialism to the Occupied)

    The misuse of public broadcast to brainwash the public is well understood and thoroughly exploited by both Microsoft and the Gates Foundation (which sells this ridiculous lie that the world’s richest people speak for and fight for the poorest, i.e. those impoverished by endless greed)

  30. Education Without Free Software is Training or Indoctrination

    Kids need to decide for themselves what they want to do and what they wish to use when they grow up; schools need to provide general tools and the mental capacity to make good decisions (rather than make these decisions for the kids, sometimes at the behest of foreign monopolists)
