PLI Seminar: USPTO Post-Grant Patent Trials 2014
The program focuses on the role of post-grant USPTO proceedings as a component of a litigation strategy, including pre-trial and post-trial options. Although the course will focus on strategic considerations, procedural traps for the unwary will also be identified. The relative advantages and disadvantages of the various proceedings are explained from the perspectives of both the Patentee and the Third Party. Perspectives of the judiciary are presented, including case studies of well-known disputes.
