Great news for inventors and product developers! National Inventors Month has now officially been moved to May. Thanks goes out to everyone at the United Inventors Association, Inventor Digest and especially to Senator Patrick Leahy.
Senator Leahy’s comments:
I am pleased that the Senate has acted quickly to pass a resolution designating May 2011 as National Inventors Month. On May 4, the National Inventors Hall of Fame, in partnership with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, will hold its 39th Annual National Inventors Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.
Our Nation’s inventors are the catalyst of our economy. Their inventions, when protected by a strong, efficient, and balanced patent system lead to new products and processes for American consumers and new jobs for American workers.
Earlier this year, the United States Senate passed overwhelmingly the America Invents Act, to ensure that our Nation’s inventors and innovators have a 21st century patent system that speeds high quality patents to market. The United States House Committee on the Judiciary recently voted to approve a very similar version of this legislation on a strong bipartisan vote. I look forward to working together to get the America Invents Act to the President’s desk and providing our inventors with the legal landscape they need to flourish.
Senator Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.
