    Edwards Wildman’s Ralph Loren Breaks Down First-to-File System in World Intellectual Property Review

    News
    Ralph Loren, an intellectual property partner in Edwards Wildman's Boston office, commented on the new first-to-file system, a central provision of the America Invents Act, in World Intellectual Property Review. In the article, "Rush of Patent Filings Ahead of AIA Change," Loren said that a new trend may be replicated under the new system, with companies filing more and more provisional applications that may incomplete. Furthermore, he added that while there may be some uncertainty in the short term for patent owners, the law will require amending in the future and it will be interesting to see how it “plays out the long run."
