Tomorrow, the House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the Implementation of the America Invents Act at 10AM. The hearing will be webcast, information is found (here).

The agenda provides a list of speakers, some of which will discuss the implementation of the new post grant proceedings. It is also likely that the Director of the USPTO will report on the results of the Study on Genetic Testing (AIA, Sec. 27) and perhaps other studies commisioned by the Act. (e.g., Patent Litigation, AIA Sec. 34).

    The hearing is before the House Judiciary Committee, not the Senate.
