Patent Post-Grant Practice (IP-429PF)
This course examines contested proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), including Inter Parties Reviews (IPRs), Post-Grant Review (PGRs), and Covered Business Method Proceedings (CBMs). The course will review the purpose and history of these proceedings, the statutory framework, and how these proceedings fit into the overall patent landscape. It will then cover in detail the various phases of the proceedings, including the petition, response and reply, discovery, evidentiary issues, use of experts, the oral hearing, and appeal to the Federal Circuit. The interplay between PTAB contested proceedings and district court litigation will also be explored.
