The USPTO's bimonthly publication for the independent inventor community
An Update on Patent Reform
It appears that the long battle to pass patent reform legislation - spanning nearly 10 years and five Congressional cycles - is nearing its end. The Senate passed its version of patent reform, S.23 the "America Invents Act," in March by a wide margin of 95-5 and the House is expected to bring its version, H.R.1249 to the House floor in June.
Welcome, everyone, to the latest edition of Inventors Eye. By now, this bimonthly publication has established itself as an important part of the USPTO's ongoing outreach to independent and small entity inventors.
