02-11-14 Edison Nation has a Petition to Protect Independent Inventors. Every inventor is asked to sign the Petition. Congress is attempting to pass the Innovation Act, which will further place independent inventors at a disadvantage as they try to market and enforce their patented products. The Innovation Act is another example of big corporations taking advantage of independent inventors.
