Not even a year after passing the landmark legislation, Congress already is considering amending the America Invents Act (AIA) to remove issues and inconsistencies within the legislation. While I have been skeptical that Congress would act so soon to amend the AIA, the House of Representatives heard testimony on several of these issues last month. We will see if Congress has the political will to act on patent law reform in an election year.
