Title: post grant opposition
Post by patent_monkey on Oct 30th, 2007, 8:22pm
I heard that the patent reform 2007 include provisions for post grant opposition such as the "second window." that leaves me thinking what is the current post grant opposition? If I understand correctly, one can initiate a patent re-exam anytime during the patent term, is that post grant opposition? also is there a first window (12 months period) for the exsiting patent rule?
