Post-Grant for Practitioners: CBM Eligibility and Reviewability

This webinar has ended.


Please join us as we continue our examination of CBM practice, including CBM eligibility and reviewability of PTAB decisions related to same. The webinar will cover the definition of covered business method patent under the AIA, as construed by the PTAB, including the exclusion of “patents for technological inventions” and the requirement that, to be eligible for CBM review, the target patent must claim activities that are “financial in nature, incidental to a financial activity or complementary to a financial activity.” We will also discuss recent noteworthy developments relating to stays and final written decisions.
