I was planning on just posting one article for tonight, but I came across this article on Twitter, and I just thought it was too funny not to share.
This guy, Gilbert Hyatt, sued USPTO earlier this year for delaying examination of his 80 patent applications. Then it turns out, Mr. Hyatt actually has 399 patent applications before the USPTO. 399?! Wow. That IS a lot of patent applications. And I have so many questions.
1. How much did it cost to file 399 applications and prosecute them?
2. How many attorneys did he work with over the years?
3. Did he prepare some of the applications on his own?
4. Why did he file so many applications?
5. Just pretending for a minute that all of his applications are registered at some point, is he really going to enforce all of his patents?
6. Who, what, when, where, and why... just in general.
