A Win for Innovation: President Signs America Invents Act
Date:9/16/2011

INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's historic signing of the America Invents Act represents a huge win for innovators and improves U.S. competiveness globally by aligning new patent laws more closely with those from other countries, said John Lechleiter, Ph.D., Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY).

Lechleiter joined other key leaders at President Obama's signing ceremony today in Alexandria, Va.  The law, which had the support of a bipartisan Congressional majority led by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), will speed the commercialization of innovative discoveries and provide greater certainty for those who invest in bringing new products to market. 

"This new law is the most significant overhaul of the U.S. patent system in 175 years. Lilly has championed efforts to modernize the patent system for many years, and we're extremely pleased that the America Invents Act is now a reality," Lechleiter said. "A strong patent system is crucial to driving America's economic competitiveness and global leadership in fields like biopharmaceutical research, which employs more than 650,000 people and supports more than 3 million U.S. jobs."

The new law will provide a simpler path forward for innovators by reducing red tape and enhancing the quality of patents that are granted. The Act will also provide resources needed to help eliminate the backlog of 700,000 applications awaiting action in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

"Modernizing U.S. patent laws will provide huge new advantages for U.S. inventors by streamlining the application process and addressing the huge backlog of current applications," said Robert Armitage, Lilly's senior vice president and general counsel. Armitage called the new law the "most important change to our patent system since the Patent Act of 1836."
