ACI’s PTO Proceedings Covered by Law360
Law360 reporter Ryan Davis covers ACI’s PTO Proceedings conference in a new article published on May 10th, titled “PTAB’s Reach Isn’t as Broad as Many Think, Chief Says.” “The Patent Trial and Appeal Board is busy handling a growing number of America Invents Act trials, but the popular proceedings result in fewer decisions invalidating patents and implicate fewer patents than people may realize, the board’s chief judge said on Wednesday,” Davis writes. “In a talk at the American Conference Institute’s post-grant proceedings conference, Chief Judge David Ruschke said that PTAB statistics don’t support some popular perceptions about the board’s work, such as that a substantial majority of claims challenged in AIA trials are found invalid or that most patents asserted in litigation end up before the PTAB.
