The PTAB Strategies and Insights newsletter provides timely updates and insights into how best to handle proceedings at the USPTO. It is designed to increase return on investment for all stakeholders looking at the entire patent life cycle in a global portfolio.

This month we cover the subject of Supplemental Examination. We dug into the data regarding Supplemental Examination – a proceeding created by the America Invents Act (AIA). Our analysis provides graphs and related analysis of the trends, the number of requests by technology type, the outcomes at the USPTO, and the type of information patent owners have been submitting as part of their Supplemental Examination filings. We hope you find the information useful.

We welcome feedback and suggestions about this newsletter to ensure we are meeting the needs and expectations of our readers. So if you have topics you wish to see explored within an issue of the newsletter, please reach out to me.
