In recent years, the United States Patent and Trademark Office has seen a dramatic increase in the use of Inter Partes Reexamination, a more efficient and less costly approach to invalidating erroneously granted patent claims. In this timely program, patent law experts Patrick J. Birde and Jeffrey S. Ginsberg discuss everything an attorney needs to know about Inter Partes Reexamination, including its history, comparisons to European proceedings, and its advantages and disadvantages. This course also explains the relevant pending bill, the Patent Reform Act of 2010. This is an excellent program for attorneys who wish to remain up-to-date on improvements in patent procedure and who are seeking guidance on how to successfully employ Inter Partes Reexamination as a strategic tool to challenge invalid patents.
