On August 20, 2015, the US Patent Office published proposed rule changes and responses to comments received from their 2014 listening tour as well as their request for feedback on post-grant proceedings instituted by the America Invents Act.
During this webinar, WilmerHale Partners Dave Cavanaugh and Greg Lantier discuss the changes and how they will affect post-grant procedures and implications for effective strategies for both patent owners and petitioners.
The topics include the following with explanation on the related rules:
- Testimonial evidence at preliminary response
- Real Party in Interest issues
- Change from a page limit to a word count limit
- Clarification of aspects to the process
