- The SAS decision was an unfortunate misstep on the part of the Supreme Court of the US
SAS Institute v Iancu ended the PTAB’s practice of partial institution for inter partes review (IPR) proceedings.Intellectual Property Magazine, June 2018
“We are very pleased that the Board ruled in favor of WAG in these IPRs,” Abramson told Law360 via email. “The rulings reflect that the real party-in-interest and privity provisions in 35 U.S.C. § 315(b) constitute a serious limitation on the time frame available for interrelated parties to challenge patents through inter partes review.”Law360, February 28, 2018
“We are pleased to have several claims that have survived IPR attack, such that Makor’s patent infringement case in the district court can go forward at least as to those claims,” Ron Abramson, an attorney for Makor, told Law360 on Tuesday. “As I am sure you are aware, current statistics show that the large majority of instituted IPRs result in invalidation of all challenged claims. We are pleased to be in the exception to that rule in the present cases.”
