About the Course:
America Invents Act replaces reexamination with inter partes review. This seminar provides strategic insights into managing the intersection of inter partes review and patent litigation in the post AIA world.
Inter partes review may benefit patent holders in terms of estoppel and ability to submit comments to the United States Patent and Trademark Office prior to the initiation of inter partes review. However, patent holders may face less settlement leverage, a higher risk of patent invalidity, and a higher risk of stay of litigation in light of inter partes review.
Timelines for filing inter partes review as well as charts comparing discovery and stays under inter partes review and litigation are provided.
Course Length: Approx. 1.5 hours
