In September 2011, the America Invents Act was signed into law, which incorporated significant changes to patent law, including new patent office proceedings for challenging the validity of patents. These “post-grant review” proceedings were designed to create easier, less-costly challenges to patents than traditional district court proceedings. Join the ISBA for this informative presentation and learn how these new proceedings are being implemented, while getting the practical tips and advice to enhance IP practice.
