Senate Approves the America Invents Act of 2011 (H.R. 1249).

Posted in Practice Commentary by Jake Ward on September 8, 2011

The Senate has voted and passed the America Invents Act of 2011 (H.R. 1249) without amendment.  We are one step closer to having a new “law of the land”, as Senator Leahy termed it, with respect to patents in the United States.  H.R. 1249 will now be delivered to the President’s desk, where the America Invents Act of 2011 will be signed into law.
