Publisher: Connecticut Law Tribune

Jon Tropp was quoted in the Connecticut Law Tribune about recent changes to the nation's patent laws. Jon pointed out the new law could be harmful to small inventors because the first-to-file provision "will potentially create a rush to the patent office that well-heeled companies will be better suited to race and win." He also predicted the possibility of increased litigation before people "have a good understanding of how the law in fact works." The Leahy-Smith America Invents Act was signed into law by President Obama in September.
