From law firm Fenwick & West: PTAB Database of Patent Trial and Appeal Board Post-Grant Decisions.

Patent Trial and Appeal Board Database

Decoding Post-Grant Decisions at the PTAB

The America Invents Act (AIA) introduced several new proceedings to contest the validity of patents at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), including inter partes reviews (IPRs), post-grant reviews (PGRs), covered business method reviews (CBMs), derivation proceedings and supplemental examinations. Overseen by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), these new procedures, along with traditional ex parte reexaminations, provide mechanisms to decide (in)validity disputes without the complexity and cost of full-scale district court litigation.

The law behind these contested proceedings is evolving rapidly, and it is with this ever-changing landscape in mind that Fenwick & West created its Patent Trial and Appeal Board Database. Designed to help our clients build awareness around the latest developments in the post-grant space, the database offers a searchable tool for users to examine key takeaways provided by recent decisions at the PTAB in several core areas.

Recent PTAB decisions are represented by the dots below, with each dot sorted chronologically by decision date and color coded by issue category. To filter the proceedings by a specific category, check or uncheck the corresponding boxes above the chart. Also, scroll over each dot to view details about that proceeding, including the case name, key takeaway from the decision and date. Click on the name at the top of the detail box to access the full text of the proceeding.
