The patent law landscape is continuously evolving as the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) considers several changes through the Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM). The ANPRM seeks comments on the proposed changes to America Invents Act trial proceedings which includes a myriad of proposed rules concerning the institution of post-grant review proceedings and discretionary denials under 35 USC 314(a), 324(a), and 325(d).

This notable development underscores the need for patent owners and practitioners to stay in the loop and keep their eyes open for potential reforms on PTAB practices. Effective use of proceedings is paramount to have a robust patent defense strategy.

This course offers an in-depth discussion of the latest developments in PTAB. In a LIVE Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners will discuss the notable court decisions that will impact PTAB operations moving forward as well as the best strategies to successfully navigate this area of law.

Key topics include:

  • Recent and Most Significant Developments in PTAB
  • Notable Court Decisions
  • Emerging Litigation Issues and Challenges
  • Best PTAB Practices
  • An Outlook of What’s Ahead
