Overview:

The patent law landscape evolves at an accelerating pace, making it a challenge for patent law experts to navigate the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) minefield every year. Some of the most anticipated developments this year include:  final rules on allocation of burdens, motions to amend, all claims and challenges, and elimination of the presumption favoring petitioners; activity on discretion to institute; issuance of the indefiniteness guidance memorandum; key cases from the Federal Circuit and Supreme Court; and the pending Arthrex case.

Patent lawyers need to stay abreast of the emerging developments to alleviate risks of legal liabilities. It is also vital to come up with best strategic plans to ensure that their business is compliant with the recent regulations.
