Someone brought to my attention a very well put together video on some of the nuances of the America Invents Act. Essentially, the video discusses the first to file requirement and shows us that it is now truly a race to the patent office. We can pick the video apart all day long, but take it for the joke that it is, and not as an indication that anything and everything under the sun is actually patentable. By the way, I especially like the cameo appearance by USPTO Director David Kappos. I thought he did a great job in his acting debut.
