Update on America Invents Act of 2011

In a rare showing of bipartisanship, the Senate passed the America Invents Act last week. Since I last reported on the Act (when it had a different name), I sent a letter to my congressional team containing the analysis I shared here several weeks ago. Before the Senate’s vote last week, I was honored to receive a call from Senator Boozeman’s office requesting my input on several provisions in the Act. His office told me only two patent attorneys in the state wrote to the Senator to comment on the Act, and his staff appreciated the help in understanding the sometimes-esoteric patent laws.
