The AIA was enacted September 16, 2011. Some has been in effect since then but a major part of it, "first to file", doesn't take place for 6 more months (18 months after it was enacted).

The AIA mandated that the Patent Office do a Regulatory Impact Analysis by 12 months after AIA was enacted, i.e. September 16, 2012.

I haven't read the whole report yet, however, I find Conclusion questionable.

Opps, Actually what the America Invents Act mandated was a study on the effects of First-to-File on Small Business and a study the consequences of patent litigation by September 16, 2012.

This is what I am waiting to see.

As far as the Regulatory Impact Analysis, I still find the Conclusion questionable because it depends on fee changes that they have no control over.

I agree, it is very "questionable" indeed. The most common "consequence" I have witnessed thus far is bankruptcy by the "small fries", resulting in their incapacitation to "fight" for what may truly and LEGALLY be theirs :(
