America Invents Act: Tools and Resources

  • Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox

On September 16, 2011, the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA) was signed into law by President Obama. The AIA represents the most significant change to the U.S. Patent Law System in more than sixty years, with direct impact on those 1) focused on patent prosecution, 2) interested in challenging patents at the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and 3) in pursuit of traditional patent litigation and enforcement via the U.S. District and Appellate Courts, as well as the International Trade Commission. 

The Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox team invested countless hours digesting and analyzing what the AIA means to the practice of patent law and the implications for protecting and enforcing intellectual property rights.
