United States President Barack Obama shakes hands with Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology senior Rebecca Hyndman before signing the America Invents Act at the school September 16, 2011 in Alexandria, Virginia. According to the White House, Hyndman received a patent in 2010 for her Under-Floor Storage invention, a simple idea that provides hidden storage space under the tiles of a kitchen or bathroom. The act reforms patent law so to give a patent to the first applicant rather than the first inventor and allows the woefully underfunded U.S. Patent and Trade Office to set and potentially keep its own fees..Credit: Chip Somodevilla / Pool via CNP
