The America Invents Act Changes the Patent System: What It Means to Manufacturers Webinar
The ability for U.S. Advanced Manufacturers to secure and leverage patent protection for their inventions has just been impacted by the most game-changing patent-related act of Congress in more than 60 years. The America Invents Act, passed by Congress in 2011, has now gone into full effect, with important provisions taking hold in September 2012 and March 2013. The presenters will summarize how this law changed the patent system and discuss how it impacts researchers, engineers and patent owners. They will also consider strategies for maximizing patent value and minimizing risks in view of these recent changes.
