PatentOptimizer™—a revolutionary approach to creating patents or analyzing existing patents
The AIA has introduced many new changes to the law that benefit both patent holders and patent challengers.
Patent holders benefit from provisions that (1) heighten the standard of review in inter partes review proceedings; (2) diminish the best mode requirement; (3) restrict standing for bringing false marking actions; and allow (4) new supplemental examination to correct inadvertent or negligent errors in prosecution.
Patent challengers gain from the (1) expanded defense of prior commercial use; (2) pre-issuance prior art submissions; (2) modified joinder rules; (3) limits to evidentiary basis for willful infringement, (4) expanded definition of prior art; and (5) post grant review.
