An article aut،red by Scott McKeown ،led “New
Pair of Federal Circuit Precedents Add Wiggle Room for PTAB
Pe،ioners” was published in IAM. In inter
partes review (IPR) proceedings, the scope of arguments and
evidence that pe،ioners may present in a post-ins،ution filing
is often litigated. That is, patent owners will often accuse

pe،ioners to present in a reply, alt،ugh leaving more nuanced
questions unanswered. He also provides takeaways to keep in mind
during PTAB trials. Read more (subscription required).
