Bloomberg BNA has published Post-Grant Patent Practice, written by four former Administrative Patent Judges of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). This authoritative new treatise analyzes many important legal procedures, including reissue, ex parte and inter partes reexamination, disclaimers, certificates of correction, and interference practice that are required of companies and their legal representatives after the successful acquisition of a patent on one of their products.
The treatise provides guidance to patent professionals regarding all USPTO post-issuance procedures that are designed to address possible mistakes made during the prosecution of a patent application, including mistakes made by the USPTO.
The America Invents Act (AIA), which took effect September 16, 2012, greatly expanded post-grant practice, particularly inter partes proceedings. Post-Grant Patent Practice analyzes the procedures introduced by the AIA, both in text and in charts, explaining them in detail, from pre-filing considerations through appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, or, alternatively, to a district court and then to the Federal Circuit. Analyzed procedures include:
