    Event Synopsis:
    The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO) post-grant patent trials landscape is continuously evolving at a dizzying pace. A few months ago, the Office started using the Phillips standard in its America Invents Act (AIA) trials, thus, abandoning the “broadest reasonable interpretation” (BRI). Just this March 15, 2019, the USPTO published a notice that launched a final pilot program for motions to amend (MTA) in the same proceedings.
