America Invents Act (AIA) Patent Trial and Appeal Board - AIA Trial Roundtable in Denver and Webcast on May 8

The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) is concluding the AIA Trial Roundtables in Denver on Thursday, May 8.

I was able to attend the roundtable in Silicon Valley a week ago, and enjoyed the presentations and mingling with the patent community. If you are outside the Denver area, you should catch the webcast that starts at 1 pm MDT. The USPTO has done an excellent job of preparing for the roundtables!

Here is the access link to watch, learn, and share feedback with the administrative patent judges (APJs) about the AIA trials: http://www.cba-cle.org/uspto.html

As stated in the reminder, "the program is broken into three segments, so feel free to join for any or all of them:
Segment 1 (one hour): lecture to highlight trial filing statistics and lessons learned about inter partes review and covered business method review proceedings
Segment 2 (one hour): mock conference call focused on a motion to amend the claims and a motion for additional discovery
Segment 3 (approximately 1.5 hours): panel discussion with expert AIA trial practitioners and APJs covering all phases of the trial process."
