Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?

  • The eBook copy of this book is not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.


Organized for ease of use, the book's practice-focused information includes:
  • A quick reference for PTAB statutes and rules
  • Building patent trials into your litigation strategy
  • A detailed description of a PTAB trial from petition preparation to appeals to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit
  • Clear references to supporting laws, rules, and regulations

Perhaps the most useful feature is a chapter on "Practical Tools" that compiles, in one place, all of the statutes, rules, and PTAB guidance covering PTAB trials, organized by topic. A busy practitioner can look up a topic, such as discovery, claim construction, or joinder, and have all of the collected guidance in one place. Practical Tools are organized using a simple, standard framework including CFR citations; PTO comments during rulemaking; PTAB orders and decisions; references to the PTAB trial practice guide; and informal guidance such as PTAB training presentations.
