Inter Partes Review Part II: Trial
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 trial phase of IPR, from the standpoints of both the challenger and the patent owner.

Topics will include:

  • Discovery
    • Timing and sequence
    • Types of discovery contemplated
  • Motion practice
    • What is the role of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB)?
    • Types of motions available
  • Claim amendments
    • Timing
  • Oral hearing
    • Who participates?
    • Structure

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