These proposals contained what at the time 1990-1991
methods and ideas of how to use telecom in such a way as to stimulate the economy and for the inventor the way of running a business from home .
At that time there was no patent application allowed for business methods- not until 1999 with the passage of the Inventors Act . This business method showed how to merge business and technology .ideas of how the commercial use of telecommunications could benefit the country and the economy by accessibility of businesses and consumers to each other .
Hartman alleges that once the government had received her ideas , that it denied her funding and support but used her writings as a template to change and revitalize the prior telecommunications networks were flailing and in danger of becoming defunct . Although history and documentation support the Inventor’s allegations – the telecom industry today which has become very rich ( from the exploitation of her intellectual contributions ) alleges the inventor – has lobbied against her rights .
For years the government has denied the Inventor’s rights by ignoring her . The inventor says that she was literally forced to file a patent application in an effort to protect her rights which have consistently been violated due to the overwhelming success that the Internet has become .
“At first , they denied me by ignoring my existence , then used ridicule and defamation . Now they trying to deny me by violating my constitutional rights to equal protection under the law in the lower courts. I believe the circulating of fraudulent information is an attempt to circumvent the law through fraud . I have filed the Writ of Mandamus with the Supreme Court , hoping that the Court will examine every aspect of the law in regards to this case . I hope sincerely that justice as the Court interprets it according to the law will be beneficial to both myself as well as the nation .
The Internet has been called by some the greatest invention of the 20th century and it took creativity and vision to conceive it . It was not conceived or invented by 13 or so committee members developing a 13 page report to commercialize the net . This alleges the inventor is fraud .It would not be the first time that African-American inventors have been excluded or squeezed out.” Where is their evidence , documentation , proof and credentials ? I have mine – what is more – where is their patent application ? I have mine .” More importantly , I have filed . They have not . I was FIRST TO INVENT and FIRST TO FILE .”
In a field in which there are billions of dollars and thousands of people with some type of claim or other in technology and ecommerce – it is very easy to have someone write fraudulent reports and advertisements . Why would an invention be better off , leaving the true inventor out of the loop ? Hartman wrote the Accessing Accessibility Process to make telecom available to the ordinary person and for the betterment and improvement of the nation .
She certainly wrote it for her own prosperity as well as the prosperity of others . She has a few patents and patent applications – all designed to help others not just herself . ” I am not after anybody’s company . I am too long in the tooth to fight with billion dollar corporations and I have no desire to run an empire . How much money can I spend at my age ? If only people would use their brains and senses instead of basing decisions on prejudice !!!! As unlikely as it may sound I believe that the government has a 2nd chance here to deal with this intellectual property in such a way as to benefit the entire nation . We are living in unlikely times . I believe that it is possible for us to experience living conditions that we have not faced before .
If I were granted a patent , I would make the Internet a real Public Utility by taking the company public with public offerings . Then it would be sure to remain both open and competitive at the same time , with each agency and agent maintaining its same standing but with the opportunity to improve. A Board of Directors composed of experts in the field and top notch administrators from each state to run it . If the economy has not already unraveled past the point of no return – I believe that would be a significant way to stimulate the economy and uplift the nation . It beats the present course of self-destruction brought on by too much racism , greed , and corruption .At the very least , I am at the very least owed being treated with respect and dignity and being compensated for the theft of my intellectual property .”
