This past week the Senate passed S.23, the America Invents Act. If made into law, it would be the biggest step in patent reform since 1952. The Bill is the result of years of debate, during which more controversial litigation-related provisions were removed. Passing on a vote of 95-5, the Bill had broad bipartisan support. However, the Bill is not free of controversy, and the corresponding House bill has not yet been unveiled.
