On September 16, 2011, the America Invents Act, also known as the AIA or Patent Reform Act of 2011, was enacted into law. The AIA has been heralded as the most significant change to Patent Law since 1952.
Many of the changes will affect the way that patents are obtained and enforced by companies and many long-standing patent acquisition and defense strategies will need to be evaluated to see if they fit within the new paradigm.
This presentation will highlight some of the major changes that will be taking place between now and March of 2013 so that companies will have time to determine how to best use the new rules to their advantage.
