World Intellectual Property Review: Federal Circuit affirms data patent after Google challenge

World Intellectual Property Review: Federal Circuit affirms data patent after Google challenge. “The US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has upheld the validity of a data transmission patent, after Google had sought to invalidate it through an inter partes review (IPR). Google had appealed against a decision of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), which upheld the validity of US patent number 8,601,154 during the IPR.”
