USPTO Issues Decision in Favor of Boyle Fredrickson Client National Graphics
On September 12, 2014, the USPTO issued a decision in Dynamic Drinkware LLC v. National Graphics, Inc. in favor of Boyle Fredrickson client National Graphics, Inc. Case IPR2013 – 00131, Patent 6,635,196. In its decision, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) found that the, “Petitioner has not demonstrated, by a preponderance of the evidence, that claims 1 and 12 of the ʼ196 patent are anticipated by Raymond under 35 U.S.C. § 102(e),” thereby upholding the validity of the patent.
This case represents a significant victory — especially because fewer than 25 percent of PTAB proceedings find that the petitioner failed to show all of the instituted claims were unpatentable.
National Graphics was represented by Boyle Fredrickson attorneys Michael T. Griggs, Keith M. Baxter, and Sarah Wong.
