WEBCAST RECORDING: How to Protect Your Patent Rights in View of Public Disclosure under the America Invents Act (AIA)

May 9, 2013

The final provisions of the most significant change in United States patent law in sixty years, the American Invents Act (AIA), are now in effect.  The first inventor to file a patent application will now take precedence over the first person to invent.  Similar to United States patent law prior to the AIA, inventors can enjoy a grace period following public disclosure of their invention before they lose their right to obtain a patent.  However, intervening disclosures by others can still complicate examination of a patent application.

Learn how public disclosure of an invention will impact intellectual property rights under the AIA.
 

  • What is a public disclosure under the AIA?
  • Should an inventor publicly disclose an invention before a patent application is filed?
  • How can an inventor overcome a rejection based on an intervening public disclosure?
  • What is the impact of an inventor's public disclosure on what the inventor can later claim in a patent application in view of the intervening disclosure?
