The PTAB Strategies and Insights Newsletter is designed to be a valuable resource for all stakeholders in the global patent arena throughout the patent life cycle. To that end, articles will provide perspectives from both sides of the “v” with an eye toward providing the most current thinking on how to increase return on investment and the value of US patents. Depending on the topic, this 360 degree approach will be explored within an article or across a series of related articles.

This month we tackle three important issues:

1. Notice –It’s What’s Required discussing how the Federal Circuit is policing the PTAB for APA due process violations
2. Why design patents are surviving post grant challenges at a higher rate than utility patents
3. The Federal Circuit’s en banc decision allowing the appeal of 315(b) issues, and a summary of related PTAB Precedential and Informative decisions

While the staff of our Newsletter have plans to explore many issues, we welcome feedback and suggestions to ensure we are meeting the needs and expectations of all our readers. So if you have issues you wish to see explored within an issue of the Newsletter, please reach out to Jason D. Eisenberg.
