The BPLA Contested Matters and Case Law Committees invite you to join a spirited round table discussion of last week’s long awaited Supreme Court decisions and their expected impact.


Oil States found that the inter partes review procedure -- which authorizes the United States Patent and Trademark Office to reconsider and cancel an already-issued patent claim under 35 U. S. C. §§311–319 -- does not violate Article III or the Seventh Amendment of the Constitution.


In the SAS Institute, the Court held that when the United States Patent and Trademark Office institutes an inter partes review to reconsider an already-issued patent claim, it must decide patentability of all claims the petitioner has challenged.


To prepare for this discussion please review the decisions in both cases:
Oil States v. Greene’s Energy
SAS Institute v. Iancu
