Summary:
One of the major concerns is that of the small inventor/small company. They fear that the patent system is already stacked against them and that the patent reform proposals will just make matters worse. That fear seems to stem from the fact that big companies can outspend them and outlast them in court cases. Without the weapons of triple damages and automatic injunctive relief, they fear that they can not stand up to the big boys and protect their patents. The post-grant review process is seen as just another way for the big boys to string out the process and force the little guy out of the game by raising the costs.
