The PTAB Strategies and Insights newsletter provides timely updates and insights into how best to handle proceedings at the USPTO. It is designed to increase return on investment for all stakeholders looking at the entire patent life cycle in a global portfolio.
This month, we cover three topics:
- We discuss (somewhat tongue in cheek) the murky situation surrounding subject matter eligibility – particularly in light of a recent Federal Circuit decision that appears to contradict recent USPTO guidance regarding 101;
- Three recent precedential decisions provide criteria for a petitioner to change RPI during trial; and
- We explore the USPTO’s guidance regarding stays of reissues and reexams during parallel AIA trials.
We welcome feedback and suggestions about this newsletter to ensure we are meeting the needs and expectations of our readers. So if you have topics you wish to see explored within an issue of the newsletter, please reach out to me.
