China gets away with an annual $600 billion of stolen intellectual property and other countries profit off innovation rather than the American innovators themselves. This is NOT the American Dream! Tea Party Patriots Action presents “Invalidated: The Shredding of the U.S. Patent System,” a documentary that every patriot should see. Available on ...
