UPDATE: Congress Passes AIA Technical Corrections Bill

Both houses of Congress have now passed the AIA Technical Corrections bill.  Notably, the bill does not contain the language regarding patent applications filed prior to June 1995:  there is no longer any requirements regarding the length of patent term for any granted patent, nor any requirement for a PTO study of the issue.

Indeed, the bill does very little other than permit granted patents to be immediately subject to inter partes review and a few other minor provisions.

The bill now requires President Obama’s signature before becoming law.
