Lobbyists appear to oppose patent reform


There is a website “Save the Inventor” that seems to be a lobbying group possibly opposing some patent reform, to stop trolls.  It has recently advertised on major news channels.  The basic link is here.  The site tries to recruit supporters to "take action now".

The site offers videos that can be viewed only when one is signed on to one’s Google and YouTube account.  The YouTube channel is here.  One of them depicts a small business owner who says she lost her invention to a large corporation.   Of course, the question is, when is an innovation really legitimate, or when is it just an abstract idea.
