Trademarks and patents remain critical in promoting innovation and creativity in all industries today. Because of this, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) continues to emphasize the need to secure transparency when it comes to patent ownership. As a result, more and more bills that would modify the patent system to address poor quality patents and safeguard inventions have been recently introduced. Among this surge of bills is the “Restoring the America Invents Act” which aims to amend several issues related to post-grant proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).

As the USPTO further adopts new rules and policies to upgrade patenting process, patent owners and petitioners need to be more cognizant of the developments happening in this area of law. Devising a comprehensive monitoring program that will help navigate these changes and improve litigation practices is also important.

This course offers an overview of the latest trends and developments in PTAB/USPTO. In a LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners will discuss the best litigation strategies and approaches to navigate significant PTAB proceedings updates.

Key topics include:

  • Recent Developments in PTAB
  • Most Common Patent Disputes
  • Best PTAB Strategies
  • Proposed Patent Legislation
  • An Outlook of What’s Ahead
