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 50% of all final decisions issued in IPR and CBM proceedings through June 2020. From the inception of AIA trials in late 2013 through 2015, those two categories had a combined share of about 60%. Pharmaceutical cases accounted for about 5.7% of final decisions, but that share is up from about 4% through 2015. Download Venable Fitzpatrick's PGHQ June 2020 Reporter here.
