    The measure would switch the United States from the
“first-to-invent” system to the “first-inventor-to-file” system for

    The proposal has met resistance from some small-scale
and independent inventors who say it will put them at a disad-
vantage with big corporations. Supporters say it will add cer-
tainty to a system now riddled by costly lawsuits.
