Post-Grant 2017 Report

The PTAB remains the forum of choice for challenging the validity of patent claims, surpassing the Eastern District of Texas as the #1 venue for patent disputes. 2017 also marked the fifth anniversary of the America Invents Act (AIA) and the first anniversary of the PTAB Bar Association.

Fish's 2017 Post-Grant Report examines significant case law and decisions before the PTAB and Federal Circuit, as well as trends and statistics from the past year. The report also reviews appeals/due process concerns and estoppel, and takes a closer look at the biopharma industry and its use of inter partes review (IPR) in patent disputes.
