IPR PTAB Cast
The IPR PTAB Cast, hosted by Craige Thompson (a.k.a., “The Examiner Whisperer”) in this show we explore cutting edge and significant inter partes review (IPR) cases that come through the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). IPRs are a hot topic because patent litigation frequently jumps from the federal courts back to the Patent Office. The relatively young IPR process has had a game-changing impact on patent valuation, enforcement, and litigation, so it warrants serious attention for anyone interested in winning the patent game.
IN RE: Power INTEGRATIONS
Summary: Did the word "couple" really need to be interpreted twice by the PTO, twice by the Federal Circuit, and once by the District Court?
In today’s IPR PTABCast, Craige explains how the proper constructions of a single word can toggle a patent between validity and invalidity, and what you can do to avoid millions of dollars of litigation expenses by adding one clarifying word.
