There's a big article in yesterday's (Apr 9) Wall St. Journal about Jerry Lemelson, one of the most prolific and succesful inventors of modern times. I first met Jerry when I was a patent examiner and also two years ago when we both spoke at an inventor's conference in Reno. He is a genius and has over 500 patents. However in the article, Bruce Lehman, the Commissioner of Patents, says he is "outraged" by those who get patents and never go to market with them. Do you think is is proper for Bruce to express such a stong opinion as this, especially when what Jerry does is 100% legal?
