Description

With the enactment of the America Invents Act and change from a first-to-invent to a first-to-file system, the United States has taken a significant step towards harmonizing its patent laws with the rest of the world's. In light of the importance of securing patents both within and outside the United States, Panel One will consider what effects, if any, this change and others will have on the increasingly globalized world of patent law.
