The Basic Facts on the Patent Act of 1790

Patent Act Of 1790 Overview

The first federal United States patent law would eventually prove to have some success. This would also prove to be somewhat of an understatement because by 1793, the government would have to make some changes and introduce revisions to the law in order to accommodate for the influx of patents that would overwhelm the Patent Board, the administrative faction in charge of patent registration.

Furthermore, further revisions were necessary because of the fact that complaints from the public regarding issues of patent protection and unauthorized use were becoming a growing concern, particularly for those that found a commercial use for the inventions and patented products. The revision of the Patent Act in 1793 would also provide for some significant provisions that would help further shape the American landscape regarding patent laws and legislation.
