SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Executive Summary: Purpose: This final rule amends the existing consolidated set of rules relating to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (Office or USPTO) trial practice for IPR, PGR, CBM, and derivation proceedings that implemented provisions of the AIA providing for trials before the Office, by allowing new testimonial evidence to be submitted with a patent owner’s preliminary response, adding a Rule 11-type certification for papers filed in a proceeding, allowing a claim construction approach that emulates the approach used by a district court following Phillips v. AWH Corp., 415 F.3d 1303 (Fed. Cir. 2005) (hereinafter ‘‘a Phillips-type or district court-type construction approach’’) for claims of patents that will expire before entry of a final written decision, and replacing the current page limit with a word count limit for major briefing. Summary of Major Provisions: In an effort to gauge the effectiveness of the rules governing AIA trials, the Office conducted a nationwide listening tour in April and May of 2014, and in June 2014, published a Federal Register Notice asking for public feedback about the AIA trial proceedings. The Office has reviewed carefully the comments and, in response to public input, already has issued a first, final rule, which was published on May 19, 2015. That final rule addressed issues concerning the patent owner’s motion to amend, the petitioner’s reply brief, and other various changes. For instance, the final rule provided ten additional pages for a patent owner’s motion to amend, allowed a claims appendix for a motion to amend, and provided ten additional pages for a petitioner’s reply brief, in addition to other changes to conform the rules to the Office’s established practices in handling AIA proceedings. The Office published a second, proposed rule on August 20, 2015, which addressed more significant proposed changes to the rules and proposed revisions to the Office Patent Trial Practice Guide. The Office received comments from the public on these proposed rules, and presents in this Federal Register document the following final rules to address the claim construction standard for AIA E:\FR\FM\01APR1.SGM 01APR1
