JUST THE STATS:
IPR AND CBM: FINAL DECISIONS BY TECHNOLOGY

Key Finding: This chart shows the technology areas for the patents for which the PTAB issued final decisions. Two technology categories—electrical/computer and data processing—have been at issue in about 51% of all final decisions issued in IPR and CBM proceedings through 2018. Through 2015, those two categories had a combined share of about 60%. Pharmaceutical cases accounted for about 6% of final decisions, but that share is up from about 4% through 2015.
