    Shifting the Case Back to the USPTO. EP110

    In this episode I talk about how a patent suit at the district court can be temporarily halted by the defendant requesting a post-grant review at the USPTO.  This usually happens with an inter partes review request or a covered business method review request. Once the USPTO makes a determination on the validity of the patent, the case may essentially end the trial court, or the trial court may continue to determine infringement.

Incredibly Helpfully Podcast

Adam does an absolutely phenomenal job at breaking down different elements of a patent. The podcast is very well structured and is the best patenting resource I found online after weeks of aggressive searching (not even an exaggeration).
