2016 Boardside Chats Include AIA Trial & Patent Reexam Appeal Topics

Starting next week, February 2nd, the USPTO's Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB) will host its second year of "Boardside Chat" webinars. The purpose of the chats is to update the public on current Board activities and statistics as well as to regularly gather feedback; this is not a CLE event. The first webinar (noon to 1PM EST) will focus on the similarities and differences between appeals stemming from a patent reexamination and those from an ex parte,application appeals.
