New York, NY, May 11, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: “2011 Patent Reform Act.” This two-hour event is scheduled on August 31, 2011 from 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET.
Recently, the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives passed similar versions of the Patent Reform Act of 2011 (S. 23 and H.R. 1249, respectively). These bills, also known as The America Invents Act, include many significant changes such as the move from a first-to-invent to a first-inventor-to-file system, and new post-grant proceedings to be conducted in the PTO.
If enacted, this new legislation will result in far-reaching, fundamental changes to the current Patent Act. IP law watchers, business people, and inventors should have a complete and clear understanding of how patent law "reform" will affect them.
The Knowledge Group has assembled a team of experts who will help you understand the most important aspects of this new legislation. A panel of thought-leaders will present their findings and best practices in a two-hour live webcast. This event is a must attend for anyone interested in understanding the future of the U.S. patent system.
