Post-Grant Proceedings Update
presented with the SABA-DC IP Section
The America Invents Act of 2011 brought a number of changes to the U.S. patent system, the most significant of which were the changes to post-grant proceedings, the formal processes to challenge issued patents offered by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. The new post-grant review (PGR) and Inter Partes Review (IPR) proceedings, which went into effect on September 16, 2012, have already revolutionized the patent landscape.
Please join us for a thought-provoking panel discussion on effective strategies, lessons learned, and a synopsis of some of the IPR and PGR decisions decided during the first two years of the America Invents Act.
