Post Grant Proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board have become a popular mechanism to challenge the validity of patents.
Post Grant Proceedings allow a party to challenge the validity of a patent—whether accused of infringement, or if there is a concern of potential infringement—at a fraction of a cost compared to validity challenges in United States District Courts. In addition to the lower cost, some prefer to have the technical issues of patent validity determined by a panel of Patent Law Judges who have technical expertise and specialize in patent law.
Thus, it is no surprise that Post Grant Proceedings, which include Inter-Partes Review, Post Grant Review and Covered Business Method Reviews, are now an integral part of the patent litigation and licensing landscape.
