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:
- A deeper dive into the newly proposed motion to amend procedures, including a discussion of a case that could have benefited from the new procedure;
- With no assignor estoppel at the PTAB, patent owners need to use employee and exit agreements to stop ex-employees from challenging their own patents;
- A discussion of the collateral estoppel implications of Rule 36 affirmances of PTAB decisions.
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.
