Abstract

The America Invents Act represents the biggest change to U.S. patent law since the 1950’s. We investigated the effects that the AIA will have. We consulted scholarly articles to discern the key issues to develop interview questions. We consulted experts in the field, and most respondents identified the Act as beneficial. We concluded that there will be an immediate benefit to the U.S., but the full effects will be unclear for several years.
