AIA Anniversary: Reflecting Back and Looking Toward the Future

Ten years have passed since the America Invents Act (AIA) was signed into law, ushering in wide-reaching changes to the field of patent law, from the first-to-file standard for inventorship to post-grant proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). Please join us for a discussion by practitioners who engage daily with the AIA in prosecution, the PTAB, and litigation contexts to consider how the patent law field has changed, what trends have arisen, and possibilities for future development.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Pertinent changes to prosecution, the PTAB, and litigation practice spurred by the AIA;

  • Observable trends in post-grant proceedings and concurrent district court litigations; and

  • Potential future changes to AIA.
