The America Invents Act established new Inter Partes Review and Post-Grant Review as new procedures for challenging the validity of issued U.S. patents. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) rules governing these procedures were published August 16, 2012, and the new Inter Partes Review procedure will take effect September 16, 2012.
Join McDermott Will & Emery for an informative discussion of the new USPTO rules and how they will impact these new avenues for challenging the validity of U.S. patents before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
