Submission + - Obama to Sign "America Invents Act of 2011" Today (

ideonexus writes: "President Obama will be signing the America Invents Act of 2011 into law today at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, Va. The bill will transition America from a "first-to-invent" to a "first-to-file" country, but critics argue that the bill fails to address the more important problem that "nobody can tell what a patent covers until they've spent months or years working it out, often in the courts.""
