Following several years of legislative discussion concerning patent reform, the Congress enacted P.L. 112-29, signed into law on September 16, 2011. The Leahy-Smith America Invents Act, or “AIA,” made significant changes to the patent system. This book discusses the changes made as well as key developments and issues for further consideration in the patent system. (Imprint: Nova)
