With the fall out of SAS Institute sweeping more claims into Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB) proceedings than ever before, it is mission critical for Patent Owners to stay abreast of evolving AIA trial practices. These practices will evolve significantly over the next few months as the PTAB moves to a Phillips claim construction, the agency adapts to a number of noteworthy Federal Circuit decisions, and the agency proposes further expected changes to established trial practices. Hot topic issues explored during this program will include:
  • Impact of the new practice guide changes and what they mean for Patent Owners
  • Impact of the switch to the Phillips claim construction practices
  • What has SAS Institute done for petitioners?
  • What has changed in RPI/Privy disputes?
  • Will amending get easier?
  • What other changes are expected in the months ahead?
  • Is legislation likely?

Our distinguished panel will provide an overview of the opinions and then tackle these complex practice issues and more. Please join Scott A. McKeown of Ropes & Gray LLP and Robert Greene Sterne of Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox, P.L.L.C. for this One-Hour Briefing.
