Inter partes review is a trial proceeding conducted at the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board to review the patentability of one or more claims in a patent only on a ground that could be raised under §§ 102 or 103, and only on the basis of prior art consisting of patents or printed publications. For first-inventor-to-file patents, inter partes review process begins with a third party (a person who is not the owner of the patent) filing a petition after the later of either: (1) 9 months after the grant of the patent or issuance of a reissue patent; or (2) if a post grant review is instituted, the termination of the post grant review. These deadlines do not apply to first-to-invent patents. The patent owner may file a preliminary response to the petition. An inter partes review may be instituted upon a showing that there is a reasonable likelihood that the petitioner would prevail with respect to at least one claim challenged. If the proceeding is instituted and not dismissed, a final determination by the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board will be issued within 1 year (extendable for good cause by 6 months). The procedure for conducting inter partes review took effect on September 16, 2012, and applies to any patent issued before, on, or after September 16, 2012.

Post grant review is a trial proceeding conducted at the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board to review the patentability of one or more claims in a patent on any ground that could be raised under § 282(b)(2) or (3). Post grant review process begins with a third party filing a petition on or prior to the date that is 9 months after the grant of the patent or issuance of a reissue patent. The patent owner may file a preliminary response to the petition. A post grant review may be instituted upon a showing that, it is more likely than not that at least one claim challenged is unpatentable. If the proceeding is instituted and not dismissed, a final determination by the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board will be issued within 1 year (extendable for good cause by 6 months). The procedure for conducting post grant review took effect on September 16, 2012, and generally applies to patents issuing from applications subject to first-inventor-to-file provisions of the AIA.

Some critical defensive tools against allegations of infringement, are Inter Partes Review and Post Grant Review. Each is essentially a compressed litigation that can be initiated by you to challenge the validity of a patent. The proceeding is litigated before the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board. During the IPR or PGR proceeding, the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board will review your arguments that the patent claims are invalid, as anticipated or obvious, based on prior art consisting of patents and other printed publications. Inter Partes Review and Post Grant Review allows you to obtain a ruling of invalidity much faster and at a lower cost than litigating in federal court.
