New York Intellectual Property Lawyers Association’s PTAB Committee to Host Virtual October Meeting on the Implications of the Facebook v. Windy City Decision

September 7, 2020

On October 6 at 4pm ET by Zoom, the New York Intellectual Property Lawyers Association’s PTAB Committee will have its monthly meeting at which the group will discuss Facebook v. Windy City. The decision, which was issued on September 4, 2020, holding, inter alia, that there is no such thing as same party joinder in IPRs and Section 315(c) is about joinder of parties to a proceeding and not joinder of issues. This decision also brings up a host of related decisions on institution, consolidation, appealability and non-appealability of PTAB decisions, POP panel decisions, the Administrative Procedures Act, Chevron deference, Skidmore deference and obviousness.  

In addition, we hope to learn whether the Supreme Court will be taking certiorari on any of the related Arthrex issues by this committee meeting. Plans for next steps will be discussed.

Every month, the NYIPLA PTAB Committee holds video conference calls to discuss the latest and greatest events involving the PTAB. All members of the NYIPLA are welcome to join the PTAB Committee at no extra cost and participate in these discussions and presentations.
