Select a format
The America Invents Act preserves court review under both 35 USC 141 and 35 USC 146 of decisions by the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board in interferences decided before September 15, 2012 and in interferences pending on September 15, 2012. However, the AIA contains no language expressly preserving court review for interferences declared after September 15, 2012.
