The America Invents Act marked  the most significant change in US patent law in the last 50 years. The historic provisions have impacted patent filings and patent litigation, as well as non-practicing entities or “patent trolls” as they are commonly known.

Bernie Knight was general counsel for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office when the America Invents Act was enacted.  He is now a partner with McDermott Will & Emery and talks about the impact of the America Invents Act which he helped shape into law.
