Join us for an engaging discussion of patent challenge options now available in the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) and the European Patent Office (EPO). We will compare and contrast EPO Oppositions and Third Party Observations with USPTO Inter Partes Review (IPR), Post Grant Review (PGR), and Covered Business Method Review (CBM) proceedings. We also will discuss coordination of transatlantic efforts, as well as pitfalls to avoid.
