Inter partes review (IPR), post-grant review (PGR), and covered business method (CBM) procedures are focused, speedy vehicles for resolving unpatentability and § 101 issues. IPRs, especially, are quickly gaining traction as the go-to mechanism for invalidating patents. But with new procedures come new (or not-yet-established) law, and a steep learning curve. This webinar provides insights and lessons learned from the PTAB’s first three years of IPRs, PGRs, and CBMs.

The webinar will last 60 minutes.

This webinar is the second in Patexia's Spotlight on PTAB series, running through March 2016.

Suggested Audience: IP practitioners working with law firms and operating companies, Companies considering using an AIA review to invalidate a patent asserted against them, licensing professionals interested in validity issues
