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 two topics and direct your attention to two recent alerts from Sterne Kessler:
- We discuss the Supreme Court decision that the government cannot bring AIA challenges because they are not persons under the law;
- We discuss the expansion of St Regis to all state owned patents where states, like tribes, cannot use sovereign immunity to bar AIA actions;
- We highlight a recent firm alert regarding 315(b) issues arising from post filing RPI status changes;
- We highlight a recent firm alert summarizing recent 101 legislations and hearings, which may lead to real patent reform on patentable subject matter.
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.
