American Invents Act - Technology in Transportation - Veepstake 2012 The Leahy-Smith American Invents Act (AIA) was signed into law in September 2011. Join us on this week's Capital Thinking as host Kevin O'Neill speaks first with intellectual property lawyer Scott Chambers for a status update on the implementation of AIA, and learn about the challenges and proposed solutions, as well as the law's legal implications. Next, to continue our recent discussions regarding the transportation authorization MAP-21, Kevin will be joined by David Crane of Autodesk. David will explain the provisions of the law that encourage the use of advanced technologies, like 3-D, to accelerate the environmental review process, increase effective public transportation, expedite projects and reduce construction costs. Lastly, if you are also wondering who Mitt Romney will pick as a running mate for the presidential election, tune in for Stephen Diaz Gavin's take on this year's veepstake.
