Recent and emerging developments continue to reshape the Patent Trial and Appeal Board’s (PTAB’s) America Invents Act (AIA) trial landscape. The Board’s increasing reliance on 35 U.S.C. § 314 discretionary denial is under attack in Google v. Uniloc and by some requests for a congressional investigation. One of the most notable cases is Facebook v. Windy City, which settles the issue of same-party or new issue joinder for inter partes reviews (IPRs). Furthermore, other court cases that practitioners should know of include Sipco v. Emerson Electric, Apple Inc. v. Content Guard Holdings, Inc., and Thryv v. Click-to-call.
Practitioners and clients should stay informed on the latest trends in AIA trial proceedings in order to come up with the most up-to-date and effective trial strategies while mitigating potential risks and pitfalls.
