New Options for Responding to Financial Product & Service Patent Threats
Bret Winterle, Fish & Richardson P.C.

Post-grant reviews by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office of financial services-related patents can provide a means to counter threats associated with NPEs. With financial institutions being regularly targeted in patent litigation suits, it is important to fully understand all of the available options to respond. This session will focus on the Covered Business Method Review (“CBMR”) program, a product of the 2011 America Invents Act, and how CBMR proceedings can be used as one of several available tools to reduce the strategic advantages of NPE litigants.

The session will provide:
• An overview of the CBMR program, including information about the program’s trends and history;
• Information about the mechanics of CBMR proceedings,including when a CBMR request can be filed, CBMR procedures, estoppel effects, the potential to pause district court litigation, and other opportunities for cost savings; and
• Information about responding to patent licensing demands, evaluation of patents, and alternative or parallel options for responding to patent threats.
