Patent Opposition

Patent opposition provides an opportunity to the public to challenge frivolous and legally invalid patents. Under the 1970 Act, the patent could be opposed before it was granted (pre-grant opposition). The person opposing the patent is part to the proceedings. Under the 2005 Amendment Act, the opposition procedure is streamlined by having both pre-grant and post-grant opposition in the Patent Office.
