Best Mode – America Invents Act

Section 15 of the America invents act amended 35 USC 282 to provide that “the failure to disclose the best mode shall not be basis on which any claim of a patent may be canceled or held invalid or otherwise unenforceable.” Although best mode is still required per 112 it can not be the basis for invalidating a granted patent.
