SAS And Oil States: How New Supreme Court Rulings Will Change Post-Grant Strategy

Tuesday, May 01, 2018

The Supreme Court’s recent decisions in SAS and Oil States mark a milestone in the evolution of AIA post grant proceedings. Although the Court affirmed the constitutionality of USPTO administrative review of issued patents, the Court also signaled that AIA trial procedures must adhere closely to the statutory framework. As a result, some PTAB practices will require modification, and patent owners and petitioners will need to reassess their strategies. This webinar will review the decisions and discuss their impact, including:

  • Structuring and opposing petitions for review
  • Institution decisions, including the future of redundancy
  • AIA trial strategies
  • Impact on estoppels
  • Future availability of claim amendments
