Program Materials

This CLE webinar will discuss post-grant patent practice and offer best practices for counsel to either patentees or third parties in inter partes review, post-grant review, and covered business method challenges.

Description

The AIA created the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) as part of its overhaul of post-grant patent practice before the USPTO. Among the significant changes are new options, including inter partes review, the transitional program for covered business method patents, and post-grant review. These PTAB challenges are now radically changing the patent monetization and litigation landscape.

The PTAB recently exceeded 2,900 post-grant proceedings and is becoming the leading forum in the U.S. for high-value patent disputes. PTAB proceedings are proving to provide a viable and cost-saving alternative to patent litigation, but does it work better for some parties than others? What are the legislative changes pending that may again alter this evolving landscape?

The evolution of validity-based patent challenges before the PTAB impacts litigators, in-house counsel and stakeholders. Counsel must understand the many aspects involved to work with patent holders and challengers to leverage the new PTAB practice and develop strategies using post-grant practice.

Listen as our authoritative panel of patent attorneys examines post-grant practice and offers best practices for counsel to patentees and third parties in inter partes review, post-grant review, and covered business method challenges.
