LOS ALTOS, Calif. - June 9, 2014 - PRLog -- Post-Grant Review

Post-grant review is a new trial proceeding at the PTAB to review the patentability of claims on any grounds that can be raised under 35 U.S.C. § 282(b)(2) or (3). The review is conducted pursuant to a third-party’s petition filed within nine months after a patent grant or reissuance. The post-grant proceeding generally applies to patents filed under the first-inventor-to-file provision of the America Invents Act (AIA), i.e. patents that have an effective filing date after March 16, 2013.

Inter partes Review

Inter partes review is a new trial proceeding replacing the earlier inter partes reexamination practice, and is directed at the patentability of claims using only prior art consisting of patents or printed publications. It provides an alternative to litigating patent validity in the Federal District Court.

Patent Interferences

Interference proceedings essentially apply to any patent claim filed prior to March 16, 2013, since this question is moot in light of the first-inventor-to-file under the AIA. The interference proceedings determine who was first to reduce an invention into patentable form.
