Post Grant Review Before the Patent and Trademark Office (LAW-795GR-001)
Meets 6/16-19 2-5PM
This course will cover post-grant proceedings (PGPs) before the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (PTO). With the enactment of the America Invent Acts in 2011, the PTO has implemented several new proceedings which permit the review of the validity of U.S. patents through a contentious proceeding at the PTO. The new proceedings - Inter Partes Review (IPRs), Covered Business Method (CBMs) and Post Grant Review (PGRs) - have distinct statutory requirements, which must be satisfied prior to institution.
