TPP makes it harder to oppose patent grants


“However, the U.S. government is now seeking to … prevent pre-grant oppositions in TPP partner countries, making it more costly and cumbersome to oppose a patent. In addition, patent offices will not have the benefit of the expertise of opponents/competitors to the applicant who may be able to identify inaccuracies in the application before a patent is approved.”
