America Invents Act – AIA

On September 16, 2011, the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA) became law and significantly changed the U.S. patent system.  The AIA not only changes the patentability standards for patent applicants, but it also changes the role of the public in the patenting process which previously was very limited.  Neustel Law Offices has posted more information about the America Invents Act – AIA.
