PTAB - A Year in Review

18 January 2018

2017 was a year for the record books at the Patent Trials and Appeal Board (PTAB), which has included newly created standard operating procedures from the PTAB, a landmark en banc ruling from the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and a series of informative decisions from PTAB impacting multiple proceedings against the same patent.
