On June 21, 2015, the Acting Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Dr. Stephen Ostroff, admitted to one of the largest thefts of intellectual property of all time.The technology involves patents and trade secrets for what is called “predictive analytics.” Predictive analytics involves the harvesting of “big data” that is then analyzed by supercomputers to predict the future.If you are wondering just how big the market is for this revolutionary technology, take a look at the numbers. The predictive analytics market is expected to grow to $5.24 billion by 2018 at an annual CAGR of 25.2% making it one of the biggest and fastest growing market segments in the economy.On May 7, 2015, Acting Commissioner Ostroff was personally served with an affidavit giving the agency 45 days, 15 days more than legally required, to refute allegations that it stole a small company’s predictive analytics patents and trade secrets which are valued at billions of dollars in today’s market.According to Dr. John Hnatio, one of the owners of the small company, FoodQuestTQ LLC, “Dr. Ostroff’s failure to refute the facts now legally stands as an admission of guilt that the FDA intentionally stole our technology. This represents a watershed moment for technology entrepreneurs across the nation who, every day, face the theft of their intellectual property by the U.S. Government. In far too many cases, these small companies do not have the resources to defend themselves from the government Goliath,” he said.The actions by the small company represent a landmark victory in preventing the government from simply stealing the technology of small businesses. “What FoodQuestTQ has done, is a strategic legal departure from relying exclusively on abstract codes or text, and an overburdened court system,” says Mr. Bruce Becker, another FoodQuestTQ entrepreneur. Becker goes on to say, “Instead of relying solely on government statutes, we have turned to the use of common law which allows judges to rely on their predecessors’ decisions of actual controversies. It’s a whole new ballgame.”

Private sector companies including the 300 member companies of the Grocery Manufacturers Association and Battelle Memorial Institute have received similar affidavits from FoodQuestTQ LLC but have not yet responded. Hnatio says, “Any company out there that stole our technology can be sure of one thing. We will aggressively pursue you. The entire future of small business is at stake here.”

As of press time we have received no response to our request for comments from Dr. Ostroff at the FDA.
