Continuarion of previous post!
 
Yes, big companies can reap benefits!!! But lets talk about large tech companies for a second OKAY! Take huge companies like Samsung or Panasonic etc... These companies once upon a time came up with the right product at the right time at the right place and made something out of it and I tip my hat to them. But now it seems that because of this historic moment of glory they had, they kept growing and today they take advantage and abuse their power to get whatever they want because they have money. Doesn't an inventor in today's era too deserve his or her moment of glory when he or she comes up with the right product at the right time and at the right place.  
Aey!

Its as if you have seen it happen the same amount of times that the moon was green! Sorry for being sarcastic my good freind! Yes it does happen, but once in this rare scenario, the pitfalls are numerous. I am currently looking for investors right now, I am very reluctant to this for reasons I won't say right now.

>I don't really see where Jim says that anyway.  As far as I can >read, he just points out that if you are unwilling to deal with >the inherent risks of doing anything other than your boring >day job, then you should go back to it.    
 
I think you need to understand where I am comming from, and that's okay, I don't expect you to know my corporate history but will breifly explain my financial situation. I posses a company in electrical technology(its been 12 years). I have no problems funding my invention via corporate funds, research and development funds and soon to happen government grants. I have no familly and never use my pesonal funds to fund my inventions.

You know I have heard this a million times, "There is a slim to none chance of wining against a big company".  
 
Then why don't all students that want to get into a science field  be warned on this, so atleats we really get  
 
individuals that only care about science and not entrepreneurialism. You see, we need scientific individuals, but  
 
the law doesn't give them a chance to make big money with their knowledge. This is my pet peeve.

Look, call me extremist, but if it would be up to me, this is the fairness I would opt for:
 
If you are a big company with lots and lots of $, then if you want to sue some poor inventor due to the *possibility* of infringment, then do so. But don't do it as an excuse so you can steal the inventor's patent in order to gain a new portion of the market by dragging the inventor into huge legal fees. The law should state, if you are a large company and cannot prove infringment after the first 25,000.00 disbursed for legal fees by the inventor, the large company is responsible for the inventor's subsequent legal fees after that. If a big company  
 
can't prove infringment after 25K$ of court litigations, the hell with your infringment... I smell a rat, don't you! eh!  
 
To me, that's fair buck for the vast effort that an inventor invests! If your a big company with big money then use your financial power fairly. And if the inventor is infringing on the big companies patent, then this should be able to be pointed out within the first 25K the inventor disburses in legal fees.

Hey, I have heard that an infringment litigation can go from 50K to 10 million dollars not to mention what RIM went through!  I don't want it to be solely about money, I want it to be fair for inventors so they can also have their moment of glory when they put all that work into their invention! I never said that inventors should be able to succeed easily did I? But they should be allowed to succeed whitout worring that a money hammer will hit them on the head if their invention is successfull.
I mean common, give us a chance!
 
Keeping up this thought of its all about money, money, money, then, the same 200 international big companies will always exist and inventors will always be poor but brilliant. Raw deal don't you think.
 
>Once again, if you truly have a good enough case against a >company and there is a lot of money at stake - it might be >easier said than done  
 
No matter what, if a big company wants it, it will get it! and I quote you with enphesizm "it is *really* easier said than done"
 
My good freinds it has been a pleasure reminising with you, you all bring up strong points and I respect them, I just hope I can pull through with my invention someday.
 
PS, sorry for the fragmentation of my post. Its because the  site wouldn't let me post it all at once!
 
Warmest regards
Robert
