Pre and Post Grant Opposition

The patent application procedure does not end with the grant of a patent. If you hold a patent, you must constantly monitor the reaction of competitors as well as new entrants into the market, and determine whether someone is patenting an idea that is comparable to your intellectual property asset through various resources.

When someone applies, you have the right to oppose the applicant within a certain time frame as the owner of the intellectual property asset.

Ex-Parte Submission Or Pre-Grant/Post Grant Opposition

Pre Grant and Post Grant Opposition

The act of raising objections against a patent grant is known as Patent opposition. It allows a third party to question the validity of a patent. Depending on the stage of the patent that has to be opposed, an opposition can be submitted as a pre-grant or post-grant opposition. Pre-grant oppositions are filed after the publication of a patent application, and post-grant oppositions are filed within 12 months of a patent’s grant date.

Anyone can start pre-grant opposition, but on the other hand, only a person interested in “somebody who is engaged and interested in the same field as the innovation” can start post-grant proceedings.

Pre grant opposition is more cost-effective and results in faster disposal of cases on merits thereby reducing the costs incurred in contesting the post-grant proceedings.
