2017 - June Meeting

Location

Please see videos of past meetings

The subject of our June meeting will be  “Inventing Jobs”- Groups that help SD inventors.

Thank you to Leslie Wagner who was our May SDIF Speaker of the Month. Leslie talked about Licensing for Inventors. There was so much interest in the subject that  people stood in line after the meeting to ask her more questions.

Thank you to May's Inventor of the Month, Dean McBain who  updated us on his True Iris Biofusion ID System that he introduced us to last year.  

Problems with New Patent Law

Inventors depend on strong intellectual property laws to defend their innovations.

As we have seen this year the patent laws have become so weak the independent inventor can no longer count on an issued patent to protect his right to profit from the labors of their mind. This strikes at the heart of what our founding fathers knew was the way to make the country great and made a foundation Article in the US constitution.

We American Independent Inventors must stand and demand our rights be  restored. Our nation needs us to create the new ideas and subsequent new jobs to continue to grow and thrive. The present patent laws must be revised to bring back the confidence a patent brings to both the inventor and investor.   Here is one of many articles from IP-Watchdog
