Resources For Researching & Tracking Patent Trial And Appeal Board (PTAB) Filings

Sponsored by the PLL Intellectual Property Caucus.

Thursday, February 20, 2014, 1-2 PM EST
With the enactment of the America Invents Act came the new Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), replacing the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences (BPAI). In this program we will review the types of actions now held before the PTAB, key documents, and terminology to aid you in your research.

 Less than a year ago, PTAB filings and decisions (particularly filings) were not easily accessible through most legal research and docket vendors. However, in the past year, multiple vendors with varied focuses have developed numerous new products for document discovery in PTAB filings. We will compare and contrast what these vendors offer - decisions, filings, tracking - and the developments on the horizon.

 Webinar space for this FREE program is limited to the first 100 registrants.  A recording of the webinar and the slides will be made available through the PLL-IP Caucus website.
