Publish and Patent? You CAN Do Both

I review many of the published research or research-focused press releases and news articles coming from UNH. As a publicly funded state institution, I recognize that publishing research and disseminating information is not only the faculty’s highest concerns, but also UNH’s top priority. However, commercializing UNH’s innovations is an integral part of the University’s long-term mission.

The America Invents Act: Prior Art and First-to-File

Since the formulation of the patent system with the adoption of the United States Constitution in 1787, the U.S. has focused on awarding a patent to the first inventor to invent. Recently in 2011, President Obama signed into law the America Invents Act (AIA) that changes the preexisting first-to-invent system into a first-inventor-to-file structure. This was an effort to harmonize the U.S. patent system with the European and other patent systems around the world that already use the first-to-file structure.
