Inter Partes Review Part I: Pretrial
The America Invents Act (AIA) creates a number of USPTO-based procedures for challenging patent validity. One of these procedures is inter partes review (IPR), which, on September 16, 2012, will replace the current inter partes reexamination. The USPTO recently circulated proposed rules governing IPR. In this webinar, we will explore the implications of these rules as they relate to the pretrial phase of IPR, from the standpoints of both the challenger and the patent owner.
