AIPLA CLE Webinar: Post-Grant Strategies for Correcting and Challenging Patent Claims
March 4, 2020 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM
1.5 CLE Credits
After a US patent issues, many procedures are available to correct the patent and challenge its validity. The America Invents Act (AIA), passed in 2011, changed the face of post-grant practice at the US Patent and Trademark Office. Inter Partes Review, Covered Business Method, and Post Grant Review procedures defined in the AIA have evolved continuously since their enactment, which has shifted their advantages relative to pre-existing Ex Parte Reexamination and Reissue procedures.
This webinar will provide a summary of post-grant procedures and describe when, why, and how each procedure is useful (or not) to patent owners and third-party challengers.
During the webinar, we will cover these topics and more:
- Review of post-grant procedures at the USPTO including Inter Partes Review (IPR), Post-Grant Review (PGR), Covered Business Method Review (CBM), Supplemental Examination, Ex Parte Reexamination, and Reissue applications
- Strategic purposes of the various post-grant procedures
- Tactics for petitioners and patent owners when multiple procedures are available
