Calendar - Navigating AIA Trials at the USPTO
When: Monday, July 14, 2014 12:00 PM - Monday, July 14, 2014 01:30 PM

Where: Venable LLP, 575 7th St, NW, Washington, DC 20004

A Roundtable Discussion Featuring Perspectives from the PTAB, In-House Counsel, and Outside Counsel, presented by the Intellectual Property Section of the BADC


Post-grant proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) became available as a mechanism challenge a patent under the America Invents Act on September 16, 2012. Available options include inter partes review (IPR), covered business method patent review (CBM), and post-grant review (PGR). These proceedings, available for both utility and design patents, have been even more popular than initially predicted.  Join the Intellectual Property Section of the BADC for a roundtable discussion to discuss the pros and cons of post-grant challenge methods from a variety of legal perspectives.


Topics will include:

  • Do’s and Don’ts of an AIA trial petition
  • How AIA trials differ from regular patent litigation
  • Tips for being successful in front of the Board
  • Business reasons to file, not to file, and alternatives to filing

Lunch provided for all attendees, courtesy of Venable LLP. Dial-in information will be made available to registered attendees for those who wish to participate by phone.
