Patent Law Changing in the US of A

Sorry for the serious post and all, but life can't always be kitties and vomit.




The America Invents bill recently passed in the Senate and looks like it's gonna pass in Congress too, meaning big changes are happening to the way patents are filed in the US. Currently patents are given to those who are first to invent something, but with this bill, patents will go to the first to file. Sure, this doesn't affect the Canadian patent system, but US patents are still gonna extremely important no matter where you're located.


What's the moral of this story? Stop sitting on your great ideas and patent them already.
