Does inter partes review—an adversarial process used by the Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) to analyze the validity of existing patents—violate the Constitution by extinguishing private property rights through a non-Article III forum without a jury?
The program will be presented as a two party argument before a panel of mock justices, and will address the following topics:
- Does the AIA's IPR procedure violate Article 3?
- Are patents public or private rights?
- Does the AIA's IPR procedure violate the 7th Amendment?
If you are interested in participating as a litigator or judge in this mock trial, please contact Bowen Liu (firstname.lastname@example.org). This event is co-sponsored by Greenberg Traurig.
