In 2011, Congress created new ways for entities accused of patent infringement to go to the Patent Trial & Appeal Board and seek to get a patent invalidated. One of those methods is called Covered Business Method (CBM) review. Through the end of July 2015, the PTAB had issued 58 final decisions in CBM cases. Of the 58 decisions, 52 (90%) invalidated or canceled all claims in the patents, six (10%) invalidated or canceled some but not all of the claims, and zero resulted in all of the patent’s claims surviving the review.
