Dr. Gary Karlin Michelson, M.D. has seen the good, the bad and the ugly in the US patent system up close and personal in his career as an inventor and through lengthy and complex litigations which arose licensing them to business partners. Michelson wants to see the US patent system improve for the benefit of all independent inventors, the American economy and to promote job growth.
Michelson was an instrumental part of developing and implementing key aspects of the America Invents Act (AIA) of 2011. This law represents the most significant change to the U.S. patent system since 1952. It was passed by Congress and was signed into law by President Barack Obama on September 16, 2011.
