Putting It All Together–Which Tools Are Right for You?
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. Other procedures include post-grant review (PGR) and supplemental examination.
Our five previous webinars explored these tools in view of the USPTO’s newly proposed rules. In this webinar, we will examine these tools in the context of a series of hypothetical situations, with the goal of enabling you to make informed strategic decisions on whether and when to invoke the choices that are made available under the AIA.
