Inter Partes Review re Software
Secured non-institution of four petitions for inter partes review filed against patents on 3D image-based rendering for real estate. The PTAB found the petitioner had not established “a reasonable likelihood of prevailing in demonstrating the unpatentability of any challenged claim” of the four patents because it failed (1) to explain sufficiently how the asserted prior art would be combined and (2) to provide sufficient “articulated reasoning with rational underpinning as to why one of ordinary skill in the art would have combined the teachings” of the references.
