In a letter dated September 29, 2006, P. Stephen Lamont contacted Rep. Nita Lowey by way of an Affirmed Written Statement claiming that law firms Proskauer Rose, Foley & Lardner, and others had committed fraud upon the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the Department of Commerce, as well as Iviewit Technologies, Inc. shareholders.
Lamont claimed the following:
"...I write in disgust at the denial of due process in the pattern of frauds, deceits, and misrepresentations that run so wide and so deep that it tears at the very fabric of what has become to be know as free commerce in this country, and, in the fact that it pertains to inventors rights, tears at the very fabric of the Constitution of the United States more fully described...[including] alleged breaches of confidentiality pertaining to Iviewit technology, transfers of trade secrets, and, even in certain circumstances, the knowing and willful invention fraud by the outright switching of signature pages of patent filings by early patent counsels...
Moreover, in the series of allegations, Iviewit is confident that your Office will find a reasonable certainty that Mssrs.
Kenneth Rubenstein ("Rubenstein"), Raymond A. Joao ("Joao"), William J. Dick ("Dick"), Steven Becker, and Douglas Boehm, all present or former members of the distinguished Bar of the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO"), designed and executed, either for themselves or others similarly situated, the deceptions, improprieties, and, even in certain circumstances, outright misappropriation by the disingenuous redirection of the disclosed Iviewit techniques by:
(i) burying the critical elements of the inventions in patent applications;
(ii) allowing the unauthorized use of Iviewit’s inventions under NDA’s without enforcement of said NDA’s;
(III) filing patent applications of their own or others based on the Iviewit inventions;
(IV) submitting knowingly false statements and falsified documents done with intent to commit fraud on the USPTO, Iviewit’s shareholders, and the Iviewit inventors..."
On Nov. 28, 2006, Lowey forwarded the matters to incoming Chairman Dingell stating “I am writing at the request of my constituent, Mr. P. Stephen Lamont, CEO of Iviewit Technologies, Inc. Mr. Lamont wrote to me requesting that the Energy and Commerce Committee investigate the alleged theft of several patents belonging to Iviewit and its founders. Enclosed is a copy...I trust that you will give this matter the consideration it deserves."
On January 10, 2007, Chairman Dingell's Energy and Commerce Committee responded "Thank you for sending...[the] Affirmed Written Statement...After consulting with Mr. Cordone [Deputy General Counsel of the Energy and Commerce Committee] as well as others I am forwarding...to Sam[pak] Garg of the Judiciary Committee.
