Cloud to Cable Patent UpdatesDecember 19, 2019
An “Inter Partes review” is defined as:
Inter partes review is a trial proceeding conducted at the Board to review the patentability of one or more claims in a patent only on a ground that could be raised under §§ 102 or 103, and only on the basis of prior art consisting of patents or printed publications (more info)
The PTAB Board will first determine if the trial will be “instituted” and whether or not the “Petitioner” has sufficient grounds, or “if reasonable likelikhood standard” is met. The “Patent Owner’s” response to the initial filling (Preliminary Response) is considered as part of this decision.
Once, the petition has been instituted, additional declarations will be required for the board to review and used by your counsel arguing a defense or requesting a claim or claims to be invalidated.
