Emerging Issues

 

Bensen on the America Invents Act

While the America Invents Act (AIA) was enacted last September, attorneys that practice in this area are still sorting through the changes to the patent system that stem from the enactment.

Patent Reform has been a long time coming, with years of effort in Congress finally culminating in the AIA. Although significantly narrower in scope than its unenacted predecessors, the AIA makes a number of important changes to the patent system.

Read what Eric Bensen, intellectual property lawyer and LexisNexis author has written about changes brought about by the Act.

Bensen is the co-author of Milgrim on Trade Secrets®, Milgrim on Licensing, Patent Licensing Transactions and Bensen & Myers on Litigation Management, all significant publications in the LexisNexis® Matthew Bender® intellectual property collection. For the complete IP listing, go here.
