Created in response to the biggest change in patent law in 60 years (the America Invents Act), Patent Office Litigation covers all aspects of the new world of contested patent proceedings before the United States Patent & Trademark Office. Authored by the team of prominent IP attorneys at Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox, this treatise analyzes the new proceedings and how the PTO will handle them. It details to the patent owner the options at the Office for building more robust patent portfolios in light of the new proceedings, explores the interface between these proceedings and the district courts, USITC and Federal Circuit, presents hypothetical scenarios addressing situations that will occur in the future, and also provides an overview of comparable proceedings in selected countries to provide an international perspective.
Patent Office Litigation provides you with a leading-edge treatment of all of the new laws, regulations, and Office rules of practice and procedure; all of which is necessary for anyone operating in the new patent world in today's global economy.
