  • Zoom


Join the New York Intellectual Property Law Association (NYIPLA) PTAB Committee on October 5 as they discuss open and unresolved issues after the Supreme Court's Arthrex decision.

In this interactive presentation, PTAB Committee co-chair Charley Macedo, co-chair Ken Adamo, and other members of the PTAB Committee will discuss and explain open and unresolved appellate issues that still exist after the Supreme Court's June 21, 2021 decision in U.S. v. Arthrex Inc. Specifically, in its decision, the Supreme Court held that APJs are principal officers.  However, the Supreme Court did not agree with the Federal Circuit's remedy and determined that final written decisions of APJs must be subject to review by the Director of the USPTO. 

There will be a Q&A session afterward. 1 CLE credit will be available for attendees.
