USPTO Launches America Invents Act Online Guide

On September 16, 2011, President Obama signed the America Invents Act (AIA) into law. The AIA makes numerous changes to U.S. patent laws that will be implemented in stages over the next 12 to 18 months. The United States Patent and Trademark Office has created an online guide dedicated to giving you the most current information on the agency’s implementation of the AIA and how the law effects patent examination, post-issuance matters, and USPTO fee and budgetary issues. The AIA website also provides the opportunity to submit comment on the AIA and the agency’s implementation of the law.
