Are you an inventor and new to Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB or Board) proceedings? Join us on Thursday, February 24, at noon ET, to learn more about all aspects of ex parte appeals, America Invents Act (AIA) proceedings, and PTAB operations.
Each Inventor Hour webinar episode covers the basics about some aspect of an ex parte appeal or an AIA proceeding. Sessions feature useful and interesting information, such as practice tips and case studies. The webinars also introduce an administrative patent judge or a PTAB staff member, so you can learn more about the Board's decision-makers and those working behind the scenes. In short, Inventor Hour webinars offer something for everyone.
Episode 5 will cover these topics:
- Meet an administrative patent judge: A conversation with Administrative Patent Judge Tawen Chang to discuss her role at the Board
- How the PTAB fits in: A discussion of where the PTAB fits into the hierarchy of patent adjudication forums
- Appeal byte: Using declarations to support patentability in ex parte appeals
