Theres no doubt about it. Convincing the PTAB to institute an inter partes review today is getting tougher. Its no longer enough to just find killer prior art and draft a strong petition. With the rise of decisions like NHK Spring and Fintiv, now petitioners have to convince the PTAB that a the IPR would not be inefficient in view of parallel proceedings in the district court or the ITC. Overcoming NHK Spring and Fintiv, can be a challenge, but its not impossible. In this presentation, we will review the developing case law and discuss how some petitioners have been able to convince the PTAB to institute despite fast moving parallel district court proceedings.
