Welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com IP reporter Scott Graham. In Tuesday’s briefing I focused on the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, so today I’m going to focus on … the Patent Trial and Appeal Board! How can I not when presented with hard evidence of a shift in practice strategy? I’ll explain below. Plus, Fish & Richardson marks a PTAB milestone, and a San Diego federal judge has green-lighted a FRAND/antitrust case, though maybe not the one you’re thinking of. As always you can email me your thoughts and follow me on Twitter.

Making Amends at the PTAB

It’s been a year of change at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. Under PTO Director Andrei Iancu‘s leadership, the board has switched claim construction standards and adopted new procedures for creating and designating precedential opinions. The U.S. Supreme Court did its part too, directing that it’s all or nothing when the PTAB institutes inter partes review proceedings.
