In Managing Intellectual Property, Scott McKeown Discusses Senator Patrick Leahy’s New PTAB Legislation

Practices: Intellectual Property, Intellectual Property Litigation, Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB) Proceedings, Patent Strategy

In a Managing Intellectual Property article, IP litigation partner and PTAB chair Scott McKeown (Washington, D.C.) discussed developing legislation for a new bill related to the Patent Trial and Appeal Board and America Invents Act. 

Scott explains that the bill is likely to introduce a few small changes, such as a change to make clear that estoppel is only for litigants who lose their cases in patent trials, not winners, and simplification of the joinder process.
