Hi, are you sure? I expect a patent law reform to take at least
10+ years. In this time we can invalidate quite a lot of patents.
And as Ross has stated, if companies know that there is such a
group and they see a chance that we bust their patent, they won't
spend the $ for attorneys, PTO fees etc.
