USPTO Patent Trial and Appeal Board to Visit a City Near You for AIA Trial Roundtables in 2014

The Patent Trial and Appeal Board of the United States Patent and Trademark Office is hosting roundtables to share information about the new AIA trials (i.e., inter partes reviews, post grant reviews, covered business method reviews, and derivations) including statistics, lessons learned, and techniques for successful motions practice.  The Board is interested in receiving feedback about the trials and will feature a panel discussion to elicit public input.  At each roundtable, at least five administrative patent judges will participate and be available for questions and conversation.
