Noroozi Discusses Recent PTAB Precedential Decisions With Bloomberg Law

In an interview with Bloomberg Law, Kayvan Noroozi discussed the impact of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board's recent precedential decisions in Valve Corp. v. Elec. Scripting Prods. and NHK Spring v. Intri-Plix. Noroozi noted that the Valve decision is likely to encourage fewer petitions brought by larger groups of petitioners joined together. As for NHK Spring, Noroozi observed that the decision puts additional significance on whether an inter partes review challenge presents issues and arguments that are truly new in light of those considered during prosecution.
