Aside From Inventors Who Will Benefit From Inventors Legislation?

Aside From Inventors Who Will Benefit From Inventors Legislation?

Aside from inventors, who will benefit from America Invents Act legislation? HR 1249 is a bill that has recently passed through the Senate and will soon be put to a vote in the House of Representatives. There are many different views on how this act, if passed through Congress, will affect American ingenuity.

The America Invents Act is a basic overhaul of a patent system that has been instilled for a very long time. Originally, men or women would file for a patent under the understanding that they had invented their product first. If someone stole the idea and filed for a patent beforehand, all the original inventor had to do was prove that is was his invention, and the patent would then revert to him. HR 1249 changes this. This makes it a “first-to-file,” standard. Regardless of who really invented it first, the person who files for the patent keeps it permanently.

There’s been a lot of debate on the impact this will have on American society as an inventive one. Although inventors will benefit from this by being able to permanently secure their patents without fear of retraction, it …

Therefore creating authentic replicas, but this is no longer to happen as copies are sold for a fraction of the price of the original.

McDonald’s has been claimed to copy Arne Jacobsen furniture by Danish furniture company Fritz Hansen who stated the new furniture in McDonald’s new rebranded restaurants were infringing intellectual property law, even though the designs used were deemed legal.

But this will no longer be the case, as due to the new act copyright of design, you would have to wait till the life of the author plus seventy years before copying the design.

The reason for this change is to encourage investment into British designers leading to more manufacturing in the UK and resulting in more jobs. This change is not beneficial for everyone, …

What Form of Identity Theft Crime Is The Worst?

What Form of Identity Theft Crime Is The Worst?

You get a phone call from a collection service that demands payment for a product you never heard of made in a store you have never been to in a state you have never visited.
