Real Inventor Adventures (What Save the Inventor Didn’t Tell You)

As I noted last fall, the Innovation Alliance is pushing its claim that all sorts of catastrophes will befall individual inventors if we pass patent reform. Recently, through its “Save the Inventor” campaign, the Innovation Alliance put up a comic strip to tell its story.

It seemed to me that the ending was unsatisfying, so I’ve written a new ending, which you can read below. (If you don’t want to read the original strips, just read the introduction, which will catch you up on the story so far.)

Click on any image below to open the gallery of strips. (Start reading at the Introduction.)
