PowerPatent Inc. Announces Intellectual Property Training Webinars for Inventors and Businesses

December 27, 2012

The United States is moving from a “first to invent” patent system to a “first inventor to file” patent system under the “America Invents Act” (AIA). This change in filing will take effect in March 2013, requiring inventors and businesses to reconsider their patent strategies. Attend the webinars to understand how to benefit from the new IP system.
