The America Invents Act

The America Invents Act Practical Advice for Practitioners, Inventors & Businesses

  • Overview of the America Invents Act
  • First Inventor To File, Diminished Grace Period, Prior Art Issues
  • The New Patent World of Contested Proceedings  
  • Company Perspectives, Procedures and Best Practices
  • USPTO Regulatory Agenda
