The America Invents Act (AIA) will move the United States Patent System from a first-to-invent system to a first-to-file system on March 16, 2013. Under the current system, an inventor has a one year grace period to file a patent application after the inventor discloses his or her invention to the public. Fortunately, for many inventors, the AIA preserves the one year grace period.
