    Event Synopsis:
    The November 2017 memorandum issued by the Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB) entitled "Guidance on Motions to Amend in view of Aqua Products" has marked a significant impact on the patentability of amended claims in IPR proceedings. In the Federal Circuit’s Aqua Products v. Matal decision, the burden of persuasion on patent owners when proving the patentability of substitute claims, has been lifted. The guidance aims to provide clarity and certainty on how the Board will handle motions when amending future substitute claims.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a team of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide and present key trends, issues and developments surrounding PTAB Proceedings in a Post-Aqua landscape. Speakers will underscore the significant impact of the Aqua decision on post-grant proceedings. The panel will offer practical tips and strategies to avoid potential threats and pitfalls.

    Key topics include:
    - IPR Proceedings Post-Aqua
    - Federal Circuit Memorandum
    - Rights from Substitute Claims
    - Prosecution Options
    - Benefits, Opportunities and Pitfalls
    - Recent Court Decisions
