Patents for Humanity Program Improvement Act

This bill authorizes the holder of an acceleration certificate awarded under the Patents for Humanity program to transfer the certificate to another party.

(The Patents for Humanity program recognizes patent owners, applicants, and licensees that use their inventions to meet humanitarian challenges. The winners each receive a certificate that can be used to accelerate certain U.S. Patent and Trademark Office proceedings, such as a patent application.)
