How To Talk PTAB At The Federal Circuit

July 13, 2015 – In The News

Scott McKeown was interviewed by Law360 in the article, "How To Talk PTAB At The Federal Circuit" in for Law360’s midyear snapshot of intellectual property opinions issued by the Federal Circuit showed an appeals court largely inclined to back the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s PTAB, having affirmed the board's decisions 88 percent of the time in the first six months of 2015.

McKeown says, “A lot of folks headed up to the Federal Circuit think it’s a chance to reargue their case, or make their brief a litany of complaints. You’ve got one or two issues that you can get the court's attention on. If you just send up a laundry list of complaints, you're doing your client a disservice.”
