UPDATE: Amended AIA Technical Corrections Bill Passes House

Yesterday evening, the House of Representatives passed the AIA Technical Corrections bill by a vote of 308-89.  Prior to passage of the bill, it was amended to remove the rather draconian provisions that would eliminate the transition patent term for applications filed prior to June 7, 1995.  Instead, the bill requires a study or report on those applications.

The bill will now require passage by the Senate and signature from Pres. Obama prior to becoming law.
