In this practical webinar, you will learn about recent developments in determining real-party-in-interest (RPI) during post-grant proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). You will learn from a panel of experts as they engage you in an in-depth discussion of the Federal Circuit decision in AIT v. RPX. You will also explore the guidance provided by the PTAB in approaching the analysis.
Upon course completion, you will be able to:
- Identify circumstances in which RPI issues are presented where additional discovery should be requested
- Analyze the relationship between entities to determine whether RPI has been properly identified by a petitioner
- Develop strategies for effectively challenging an incorrectly identified RPI in proceedings before the PTAB
- Identify avenues for appealing an improper PTAB determination with respect to RPI to the Federal Circuit
