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 reissue practice via an overview discussion and a review of two recent Federal Circuit opinions in recent reissue cases:
- Our overview article examines options to resurrect invalidated patents via reissue or ex parte reexamination by comparing the requirements for each and the speed of reissue examined as special applications to reexaminations and Track One applications.
- We also discuss two Federal Circuit cases explaining the requirements for reissue applications to comply with the original patent doctrine and what the Board needs to evaluate to determine if a reissue complies with the written description requirement.
- Updated Trial Practice Guide.
