In his fifth prediction from a series of six, Robert Greene Sterne, editor-in-chief of Patent Office Litigation and founding director at intellectual property law firm Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox PLLC discusses stays in district court proceedings and their relationship to the new world of patent office litigation/contested proceedings at the United States Patent & Trademark Office. He specifically addresses the uncertainty related to concurrent proceedings at the USPTO, district courts, and the U.S. International Trade Commission over the next 12-24 months.

Ushered in by the America Invents Act, new contested proceedings before the USPTO are the most significant development in patent practice since the creation of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in 1982. Patent Office Litigation is a two-volume book focused on the new contested proceedings under the America Invents Act. This book examines how the proceedings interact with other aspects of patent procurement and enforcement, while delivering practical analysis and advice to all members of the greater intellectual property law community.
