The Burlington Hawkeye Letter to the Editor: Support patent system, by Joe Mitchell

This post originally appeared in The Burlington Hawkeye on April 17, 2016.

These inventions, which have helped thousands of children walk, have allowed our family to positively contribute to Iowa’s innovative economy. Inventions such as my father’s help improve lives and create jobs.
