President Barack Obama last week signed the America Invents Act into law.

This act includes patent reform legislation that will help American entrepreneurs and businesses bring their inventions to market sooner, promoting business and job creation, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

Passed with strong bipartisan support, the act represents the most significant reform of the Patent Act since 1952. It also establishes a new in-house review process for challenging patents — a process that is faster and cheaper than litigation, the NMMA said.
