Learn about options available after a final rejection

Join the next Boardside Chat webinar this Thursday, July 15, from noon to 1 p.m. ET, for a discussion about options available after a final rejection.

Vice Chief Judge Michael Kim and Judge Michael Cygan will provide information to help applicants decide whether to file a Request for Continued Examination (RCE) or an appeal to the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). Lead Judge James Worth and Acting Deputy Director of the Office of Petitions Kristen Matter will discuss the difference between matters appealable to the PTAB and matters that need to be petitioned to the Director.

There will be a Q&A session at the end. Please send questions in advance or during the webinar to PTABBoardsideChat@uspto.gov.

Register in advance. The webinar is free and open to all. Captioning service will be provided.

More information is available on the PTAB Boardside Chat page of the USPTO website.
