The America Invents Act, enacted in 2011, has significantly changed the patent litigation landscape in the US. It created the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and three new principal post-grant review mechanisms: post-grant review (PGR), inter partes review (IPR) and covered business method review (CBMR) (collectively, PTAB trials).
