« Inter partes review (IPR) is one of a number of mechanisms for eliminating improper patents through review of patents post-grant. While the purpose of IPRs is to provide a cheaper, more expert alternative to litigation for screening out bad patents, the devil is in the design details. For example, the inclusion of key procedural features in IPRs, such as fixed time frames and expanded discovery contributed to making it far more popular than its predecessors ».
