Post-Grant Patent Office Proceedings After the AIA: Lessons from the First Five Years

Program Number: 2724IP

Program Date: 06/01/2017

Description

The creation of Inter Partes Review (IPR), Post Grant Review (PGR), and Covered Business Method Review (CBMR) has drastically impacted and shifted patent litigation strategy since 2012. These proceedings have proven to be a relatively cost-effective approach for a party seeking to challenge the validity of a patent. But these proceedings are not without their critics, and numerous issues have developed relating to the authority of the Patent Office concerning grant or denial of institution, the applicable claim construction and invalidity standards, and the effect of estoppel, just to name a few. This presentation focuses on the evolution of Post-Grant Patent Office proceedings, recent reforms, current trends, and potential changes that may occur in the near future.
