On Monday, March 21, 2016, the Federal Circuit refused to overturn several Patent Trial and Appeal Board decisions finding that an inventor’s patents for recording vehicle data during a crash that were challenged by Toyota are unpatentable, The Federal Circuit ultimately agreed with the PTAB that the challenged claims of the patents would have been obvious to one of ordinary skill in the art. The Federal Circuit’s ruling is a great result for Oblon client, Toyota.
