McKool Smith principal Nick Matich shared his opinion on Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA) with Law360 in the article “Leahy's Exit May Return Senate IP Control To PTAB Critics.” The article anticipates that when Senator Patrick Leahy leaves the Senate in 2023, the intellectual property subcommittee will likely be handed to Senators Thom Tillis and Chris Coons, where booth of them oppose Leahy's patent reforms. “With Leahy out of the picture for 2023, attorneys say they expect the subcommittee's leadership to head back to Coons or Tillis, depending on which party controls the Senate.” Nick believes “this change will likely feel simultaneously like a big switch and barely one at all.” Read the article here.
