Bloomberg Law writes, “General Electric Co.‘s status as a patent owner’s competitor wasn’t sufficient to establish standing to appeal a Patent Trial and Appeal Board decision. GE’s argument that it suffered competitive injury was too speculative to support its appeal, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said July 10.”

Director Pauline M. Pelletier was quoted in the article, “GE Can’t Appeal Decision Upholding Competitor’s Patent (1),” published by Bloomberg Law about the growing body of case law on whether petitioners filing patent challenges have standing to appeal.
