On September 16, 2011, President Obama signed the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA), the most significant change to the US Patent system since the Patent Act of 1952. The result of years of efforts to revise and reform the laws governing patent practice in the US, many consider the AIA to be a success. However, the AIA is not without its critics. “Patent Success or Failure?” will bring together government officials, judges, lawyers, and academics to consider the effects of the AIA on the patent landscape.
