The 112-page chapter, written by several Sterne Kessler directors in conjunction with litigators from the American Bar Association Section of Intellectual Property Law, provides an in-depth review of patent law, since the enactment of the America Invents Act (AIA) in 2012 and its impact on patent types, including medical devices and designs. In addition, the chapter offers patent owners and patent challengers trends and insights on cases before the United States Patent and Trademark Office Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).
