AIPLA to Congress: All Agree It's Time for a Post-Grant Opposition System

"In view of the absence of an effective and inexpensive means to challenge patents, AIPLA, the PTO, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the NAS, and, just last week, the Intellectual Property Law Section of the ABA have all put forth suggestions for post-grant opposition proceedings as a means of permitting a more meaningful, timely and cost-effective opportunity for the public to challenge patents that may be of questionable validity."

The witness list, their statements, and a recorded webcast of the June 24, 2004 House Judiciary Committee oversight hearing on “Patent Quality Improvement: Post-Grant Opposition� are available by clicking on the title.
