The roadshows are designed to be interactive, including audience participation in an educational game show as well as a hands-on workshop. For the workshop, the audience will work in teams to review and discuss a mock scenario in which a petitioner wishes to assert a challenge against a patent. The teams will discuss which type of petition to file and what issues might arise from both the petitioner's and patent owner's perspectives. Topics of discussion will include bars to filing, real party-in-interest and joinder considerations, and claim construction. The teams likewise will decide whether to institute, and if so, on what grounds and for which claims. Several PTAB judges will facilitate the workshop discussion with one assigned to each team. In Detroit, the PTAB will host an actual AIA Trial Hearing in lieu of the workshop.
The roadshows are free and open to the public with seating on a
first-come, first-served basis. The Board also is working toward
making CLE available to attendees. For more information about the
Detroit Region Roadshows, please visit the PTAB website
