Patent rules could have significant impact on universities

from The Coloradoan (commentary)

Under the new law, the first inventor to file a patent application wins priority for the filed invention, underscoring the importance of timely filing to preserve priority of invention. University inventors, for example, should understand the elevated burden that the act places on them to actively work with their technology transfer office to ensure prompt patent application filings to obtain patent claims. Although the act provides a one-year grace period for the inventor to publicly disclose the invention prior to filing, this exception is narrow and the exact scope of this grace period can be uncertain as obviousness is measured under the act at the time the patent application is filed instead of when the invention was conceived or reduced to practice. more
