The Intellectual Property Owners Association (IPO) will offer a one-hour webinar entitled "Post-Grant Review -- Coming Soon" on October 16, 2013 beginning at 2:00 pm (ET). A panel consisting of the Hon. Jennifer Bisk, Patent Trial and Appeal Board, U.S. Patent and Trademark Office; Mark Charles of Procter & Gamble Co.; and Marc Wefers of Fish & Richardson, PC will consider the ways in which post-grant review (PGR) is likely to develop, including whether certain industries are liable to be targeted; how to avoid pitfalls in pursuing parallel challenges in the U.S. and Europe; the deterrence of the estoppel provisions; and important implications for a company if it steps up the monitoring of competitors' patent applications.
The registration fee for the webinar is $120 (government and academic rates are available upon request). Those interested in registering for the webinar can do so here.
