Patent Eligibility Challenges in Post-Grant Proceedings [VIDEO]
Robert Greene Sterne discusses a critical topic in the current patent office litigation landscape -- patent eligibility challenges in post-grant proceedings after the America Invents Act. He explains how in the past patent eligibility was little more than a "coarse filter," but the new contested proceedings will play a big role in the legal area of patent eligibility moving forward.
Mr. Sterne acts as an IP strategic advisor to start ups, emerging companies and investors and serves on the boards of directors of a publicly traded company and a number of charitable organizations. He is a member of the University of Maryland School of Law, IP Program Advisory Board and the Advisory Board of The Sedona Conference. He served as the co-chair of the Sedona Patent Litigation Conference in 2001, 2002, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 (to be held October 2010). For more than twenty years, Mr. Sterne was a member of the Advisory Board of BNA's Patent, Trademark and Copyright Journal. He holds an Extra Class radio license (WK3W) from the FCC.
