ABSTRACT
The article focuses the new rules published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in the Federal Register to implement the patent reforms as part of the Leahy-Smith America Invents Acts. A first-to-file system was introduced by the new law, replacing the old one's first-to-invent system. Author Robert Armitage said the new law shifted the U.S. patent system from a nontransparent, subjective, unpredictable and complex one to the opposite.
