Comment Re:USPTO pay for lawyer fees? (Score 1) 213

Typically, patents are meant to be overturned by courts, and not directly by the USPTO. Suing the USPTO to damnation is one of the only paths to shutting it down. They are clearly guilty here, and require massive reform which is not forthcoming. There is a larger picture than the one you've been looking at.

I've got a solution for the whole shebang. Sue the USPTO every time a court rules they issued a bad patent - it's they who screw up the most, after all. Pretty soon they'll have no money left and will either shut down or will make each patent application a 100 million dollars.
