Recent Developments in Claims Construction (Nov 2018)
The driver of patent application preparation/prosecution, district court trials, Federal Circuit appeals, and AIA post-grant review proceedings, remains—claim construction. Review 2017-2018 claim construction cases and issues at the Federal Circuit and trial court levels. And examine the PTAB’s procedural and substantive claim construction “rules, practices and etc.," including the PTAB proposal to drop BRI and adopt Phillips construction under all circumstances, and possible rule and practice changes to mandate PTAB consideration of claim constructions from other proceedings.
