ABOUT THE MEETING:  

The Leahy–Smith America Invents Act (AIA) is a United States federal statute that came into effect in 2013.  The law represents the most significant change to the U.S. patent system since 1952. The law switched the U.S. rights to a patent from the previous “first-to-invent” system to a “first inventor-to-file” system. The presentation will highlight some of the more significant changes stemming from the AIA to the U.S. patent system and practice points that inventors need to keep in mind should they be interested in seeking patent protection, including initial means for searching for relevant prior art.
