This panel will provide insight into some of the more complicated and up and coming issues, which all practicing PTAB attorneys must be aware of going forward. Topics of discussion will include:

  • What constitutes a prior art “printed publication” at the PTAB?
  • Effectively using secondary considerations to overcome an obviousness challenge at the PTAB
  • Offensive and defensive tools for successful post-grant proceedings
