The emerging popularity of reexamination largely stems from an increased willingness of some Federal District Courts to stay a patent litigation in the face of an initiated reexamination. Thus, reexam proceedings typically involve patents that are subject to very high profile litigation disputes. The increasing use of inter partes reexamination raises a number of new practice concerns, as well.

 

New strategies are evolving in these high stakes proceedings at the Patent Office. Join two of the nation’s foremost experts in both patent law and reexamination as they share their insights into how the playing field is evolving. The new PTO leadership has many reexamination initiatives in the pipeline, and Steve Kunin and Hal Wegner are uniquely positioned to provide updates on the latest developments.
