Post-Grant Review and Derivation Proceedings
The America Invents Act (AIA) establishes a number of new trial proceedings to be conducted by a new Patent Trial and Appeal Board in the USPTO. Previous webinars in this series have focused on the new inter partes review (IPR) proceeding. In this webinar, we considered the other two inter partes proceedings established under the AIA – post-grant review (PGR) and derivation proceedings. We covered differences between these proceedings and IPR, and explored tactical and strategic implications following therefrom.
