Patent opposition, if used appropriately, can act as an important tool to prevent the grant of frivolous patents.
The patent opposition system in India is unique as it provides two kinds of patent opposition process at two different stages of patent prosecution:
- a pre-grant opposition; and
- a post-grant opposition.
- The opposition procedure and the appeal procedure require an in-depth knowledge and experience in front of the Opposition Board and the IPAB.
