Dorothy M. Hartman , self proclaimed inventor of intellectual property which she says contributed to the devlopment of the Internet suffers vandalism of her home and automobiles …..
As the Web which is the Internet across borders celebrates its 25th birthday and ISPs form mega conglomerates that consume Internet real estate – its true inventor of intellectual property which she says was used to create the template to commercialize telecom continues to suffer persecution and mega injustice .
Hartman says that for the past 25 years the United States has practiced tyranny against her in stealing her intellectual property without compensating her – that her life has gone backwards . Hartman who is a retired science teacher and entrepreneur conceived the idea(s) of telecommunications services in a cyberspace marketplace back in the 1990’s . She is handicapped and devised the method(s) as a means of working from home . Her intent was to help herself and others and she realized the implications for commerce and the economy . The isolation caused by her handicap was the motivation for her design of the invention . “ Necessity is the father of invention , sometimes it is also the mother of invention “ , says Hartman . I regret that I shared my intellectual property with the government only to the extent that they dealt unfairly and unjustly with me .
She went to the Federal Government seeking funding and support and the rest is history . The government- although in full possession of the inventor’s intellectual property having it fully reviewed by its employees in the Small Business Innovation Program , National Science Foundation and others did not fund Hartman or hire her as a contractor for the research on the new ideas . Instead , the National Science Foundation used her proprietary information without her authorization to revamp and transform what were failing prior telecom networks into the structure that emerged in the 1990’s . This structure first referred to as the Information Superhighway is what morphed into today’s modern day INTERNET.
Although she was FIRST TO FILE and FIRST TO INVENT because of the overwhelming wealth and fortunes now enjoyed by those that were either already in the technology field(s) or entered soon after the Internet emerged – she alleges that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is and continues to be in violation of her constitutional rights and civil rights .
Hartman says that although the U.S. Supreme Court denied her Writ of Certiorari on November 18 , 2013 without an Opinion – she is filing an Extraordinary Writ as this case deserves its day in Court to end the terrible injustice that she is suffering . She hopes that the Court will reopen this case .
While her invention enables billions of people , she is being victimized by racism and oppression . Local bigots and oppressors have destroyed her automobiles – her home destroyed and she is being besieged by a fraudulent mortgage foreclosure and attacks on her credit rating . All designed to demean her and destroy her credibility . While some of this is occurring because of her standing up for her local property rights and fight against defamation, no doubt some is caused by her “ internet claims” .
It is a horrible injustice that the inventor of the greatest invention of the 20th century should be treated in such a manner . Hartman alleges that her story is being blacked out in the mainstream media – so that these abuses are taking place under the radar . The federal government knows and has proof that Hartman is the inventor of the Accessing Accessibility Process which led to the development of today’s Internet but is deliberately discriminating against her – a handicapped minority with no means to fight back against its power and the wealth of corporations . Therefore she will file asking the Court to issue a Writ of Mandamus to reopen the case as she says the suffering that she is enduring is not nor has it ever been deserved . This is purely about racism , hatred , and oppression of the advancement of people of color . She is being treated as a pariah for standing up for her own right to be treated justly .
Hartman never claimed to have invented the ARPA or the original telecom networks , which are mostly attributed to Vinton Cerf and Robert Kahn who are already recognized for their worthwhile and notable contributions . She is a science teacher , not a technician . Nor did she ever claim to have invented computers or mobile phones or any of the components or methods that contribute to billions of people accessing and using the Internet .
She did however invent a better way of using the telecommunications network – one which has made the industry successful . Her link to technology and ecommerce was a small one but vital . Her ideas initiated the transformation in telecom which changed the way the world interacts and created tremendous success for the industry . That is worth recognition and compensation . The document and graphs below show the effect on the industry due to the transformation caused by what she alleges were her ideas of Commercialization of the telecom networks . The graph is flat until after 1990 . The amount of data being moved on the networks show a dramatic increase . Today there are millions of websites and billions of users . The Internet has gone around the world becoming the WorldWide Web . This persecution is about oppression and to use the vernacular , “keeping the niggah in her place ” . Therefore her struggle for justice and truth will continue .
