The hippies of the 60's didn't get much right, but one they did was "change the system from within."
Included in this bill is a big o' wad of cash so the patent office can hire more patent examiners. These are the people that really make the decisions of what's truly innovative and what's bogus. So... you critics of the system should watch the USPTO's website because they'll soon be hiring a whole lot of new examiners. Get a job there and you can (surreptitiously) reform the system yourselves by simply rejecting bogus patents. No legislation, lobbying, or protesting could make a bigger difference than a diligent and conscientious examiner. Keep your agenda to yourself but once you're in you'll be in the best possible position to change the system from within.
