Patent Ethics treatise co-author, Dr. Mercedes K. Meyer will provide an examination of the patent practitioner’s world post-AIA. Her examination will place an ‘ethical lens’ over day-to-day procedures for both patent prosecution and claims drafting. Dr. Meyer will review the shift of duties, new duties, changes to averments and date relevance under AIA. The America Invents Act (AIA) was enacted into law on September 16, 2011 with portions of the Act became effective. Others portions became effective on September 16, 2012 or March 16, 2013. The USPTO Office of Enrollment and Discipline (OED) has had no complaints that practitioners have committed any ethical violations under the newly enacted AIA laws. Nor are there any legal malpractice claims arising under the AIA that we are currently aware of. However, some aspects of the AIA pose greater concern than other areas. Concerns fall into one of three areas: (1) new dates to miss; (2) new averments or certifications that pose heightened risk; and (3) failures to comply with a new duty under the AIA. In addition, we will discuss the effect of the new statute of limitation on OED proceedings.
