To date, the lack of precedent and predictability of the new post-grant USPTO proceedings has caused petitioners, patent owners, and their counsel to proceed with caution. However, given the recent final decisions by the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board, and the many more that are expected to be released in the next weeks and months, we can now begin to glean the insight we have all been waiting for.

In this installment of our complimentary Patent Nation Web Conference series, we will address the recent final decision in Idle Free Systems, Inc. v. Bergstrom, Inc. (IPR2012-00027) by analyzing the key issues that arose in the case, along with the lessons learned and trends from the post-grant, litigation, and business perspectives, including:

  • What a company should consider before initiating post-grant proceedings
  • Best practices for drafting an IPR or CBM
  • Post-grant proceedings where parallel litigation is involved
  • Motions practice and evidentiary issues in post-grant proceedings
  • Precedent established by the first final decisions

Featured Foley Speakers

  • Howard Shipley, Partner, Patent Office Trials Practice
  • Allen Arntsen, Partner, IP Litigation Practice

Featured Guest Speaker

  • Robert Hopton, President and CEO of Idle Free Systems, Inc.

This briefing is tailored for corporate executives and in-house counsel who are familiar with the AIA post-grant proceedings.
