Welcome to the Southern California Inventors Forum, one of the largest inventors’ groups in the United States. We were formed over 20 years ago as a small group of inventors, and are now a 501(c)(3) non-profit. With over 500 members, we help inventors learn how to research, develop and protect their inventions. We offer valuable support and insight into ways to profit from their inventions through building their own business or licensing their inventions.

Our Patent System & the Courts
Why "1st to file" hurts the small inventor
& other legislation that works against innovation in the U.S.
About the Speaker
Paul Morinville is one of the founders of US Inventor, a 501c4 nonprofit inventor advocacy firm. They helped stop the Innovation Act and are actively working to push new legislation to correct what they consider to be errant Supreme Court decisions and the AIA. They have about 11,000 members who are inventors, startups execs and people interested in the reform of the patent system.We'll have a panel to discuss the issue after the presentation with Paul Morinville, James Kirk (patent Attorney), and a partner from One3IP.
