Boardside Chat Tuesday
This Tuesday (noon to 1PM EST), the PTAB will conduct a webinar Information Session with the Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the USPTO Kathi Vidal to address the recently published Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM). Public input is sought by June 20th on proposed changes to discretionary institution practices, petition word limits, and settlement practices for AIA proceedings before the PTAB.
While Boardside webinars typically include a Q&A session, questions were not solicited in this notice. As such, this appears to be more in the way of a standard explanation of the numerous proposals.
