Challenging Patent Validity in the USPTO: Strategic Considerations in View of the USPTO’s Proposed RulesThe third session in a six-part webinar series featuring experienced Fish & Richardson attorneys and guest speakers

Tuesday, April 10, 2012 – The third in a six-part series

Inter Partes Review Part III: Post-Trial
John Phillips, Principal
Karl Renner, Principal and Co-chair of Fish & Richardson’s Post-Grant Practice
Dorothy Whelan, Principal and Co-chair of Fish & Richardson’s Post-Grant Practice

The America Invents Act (AIA) creates a number of USPTO-based procedures for challenging patent validity. One of these procedures is inter partes review (IPR), which, on September 16, 2012, will replace the current inter partes reexamination. The USPTO recently circulated proposed rules governing IPR. In this webinar, we will explore the implications of these rules as they relate to the post-trial phase of IPR, from the standpoints of both the challenger and the patent owner.

Topics will include:

  • “Final” Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) decision
    • Timing
    • Appeal
  • Estoppel
    • Scope
      • Pending proceedings
      • New proceedings
    • Implications for patent owner
    • Implications for challenger
  • Hypotheticals exploring strategic options following PTAB decision

For information on the next three webinars in the series or past webinars in the series, please visit the series web page.

Fish & Richardson will apply one hour of general CLE credit in most states.
