The Intellectual Property Owners Association is sponsoring two webinars, today and tomorrow, on the PTO’s recently proposed rules for the new AIA inter partes proceedings. Today, starting at 2:00 PM, the session will consider the preliminary phase of those proceedings, from filing through institution. Tomorrow’s session will cover the trial phase, i.e., the period after institution through conclusion.
Most notably, the webinar panelists include Administrative Patent Judge Michael Tierney who was a key figure in drafting the rules proposed for the new proceedings.
