Common Questions
The America Invents Act (AIA)

The first-to-file provision of the America Invents Act (AIA) went into effect on March 16, 2013. That means if the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) receives two or more applications for the same invention, patent rights will be awarded to the first person to file—even if they were not the first to invent!
