While inter partes review provides a powerful means for challenging patentability, Congress also included an estoppel provision, which is intended to limit the arguments petitioners can raise following PTAB review. The Board, district courts, and the Federal Circuit are grappling with the precise scope of that estoppel. Our panel of practitioners, in-house attorneys, and a PTO associate solicitor will explore recent decisions addressing the scope of AIA estoppel and what we can expect as more cases reach the Federal Circuit.
