Scrambling to get his idea to market and bring financial security to his family, he applies for a US patent. But,his plans of success are blindsided when his genius idea is stolen by a big company (an AS SEEN ON TV company) before he can make his first dime. Thrust into a battle to save his invention he uncovers the shocking truth that our patent system has evolved to serve a corporate-government-legal industry at the expense of the inventors it was intended for. Learn how big tech companies and the USTPO are robbing American inventors of their ideas, their labor and their financial investments. Again, watch the official trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thaqlchX0mE The film features interviews with experts like former Attorney General Ed Meese, Inventor and Congressional Representative Thomas Massie, Antonin Scalia Law Professor and IP expert Adam Mossoff provide shocking information about the state of the weakening US Patent system. Other inventors share their stories of theft, patent invalidation, and difficulty finding investors for their patented innovations. IPI's Tom Giovanetti, Ken Blackwell, Leonard Leo, Dr. Matthew Spalding, and Dan Schneider all provide valuable insights into how the current system is harming Americans and the American innovation economy.
