ANNIE MINTER AND BETTY BROWN INVENTED A PATENT THAT IS SAVING COUNTLESS LIVES
Annie Minter and Betty Brown
Fairburn, GA (BlackNews.com) – Inspired by God, two sisters, whose maiden name is Wright, without prior experience invented a patent (U.S. PATENT 6,972,693) that is making America and other nations a safer place to live.
Annie Minter and Betty Brown invented a “Vehicle and Cargo Security Inspection System and Method which detects explosives, contrabands, bodies, weapons and chemicals currently being used by the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense, Department of Transportation, Custom and Boarder Protection and is believed to be used by the Department of Energy and a host of private corporations without recognition or payment to these trail brazing sisters. Although, the U.S. Government has the right to use the patents of any of its citizens in an eminent domain context, in this case they have not provided notice of the use securing our boarders, cities and military installations and have not offered compensation for uses beginning as early as 2006.
The Department of Energy has required that the sisters identify each use of the patent which is a unreasonable burden in light of the bureaucracy involved in attempting to identify contracts which may have their system and method listed other than “Vehicle and Cargo Security Inspection Systems”. This is required although the United States Army has indicated that the Energy Department should have a list of all of their contracts. It certainly should have information about the use at Fort Hood which is operational.
The sisters ask that you notify your Congressman that the process of eminent domain in the context of patent use without notice to the patent holder is a taking not contemplated under the United States Constitution and that you would like to see an amendment to 28 U.S.C. §1498 to require notice to the patent holder of any use of their patent by the United States Government and that the statute of limitations to bring legal actions does not begin to run until the notice is provided.
Moreover, if you observe any system that you feel is a Vehicle and Cargo Security Inspection System we ask that you submit a picture or video, the name of the system, company and location in order to assist Ms. Brown and Ms. Minter in protecting their patent.
You can email any photos and send other information to email@example.com
Ms. Brown and Ms. Minter as African American inventors in the twenty first century feel they owe it to their fore fathers who invented life changing methods and systems who did not realize the benefits of their inventions, to fight to protect their patent.
