KnowledgeBridge™: A View From The Trenches Of The Most-Active Forum For Patent Validity Challenges The PTAB

In 2014, the PTAB overtook the Eastern District of Texas to become the most active forum for patent validity challenges. With IPR and CBM proceedings nearing their third anniversary, what has changed in post- grant practice, and how do those changes impact your IP strategy? In this interactive session, we will address recent developments that impact the scope and frequency of institution, the extensiveness of discovery, and the reach of estoppel and the availability of CBMR to mitigate the same, and we'll also discuss what is likely to come in the future.
