Recent PTAB 101 Decisions: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

My thanks to Janal Kalis of Schwegman, Lundberg & Woessner, P.A., for this post:

THE GOOD

The PTAB reversed an examiner’s 101 rejection of claims in an SAP patent application.  The PTAB also reversed on 103.  However, there is a dissenting opinion:  https://e-foia.uspto.gov/Foia/RetrievePdf?system=BPAI&flNm=fd2018002012-09-11-2018-1

The PTAB Reversed an Examiner’s 101 Rejection of Claims in a CalTech Patent Application for a Method for Predicting 3D Structures, such as Proteins:  https://e-foia.uspto.gov/Foia/RetrievePdf?system=BPAI&flNm=fd2017000910-09-11-2018-1

THE BAD

The PTAB Affirmed an Examiner’s 101 Rejection of Claims for an Information Display Device But Reversed the Examiner’s 102 Rejection–this is what Dir. Iancu spoke of yesterday:  https://e-foia.uspto.gov/Foia/RetrievePdf?system=BPAI&flNm=fd2018002229-09-10-2018-1

The PTAB Affirmed an Examiner’s 101 Rejection of Claims in an IBM Patent Application But Reversed the Examiner’s 103 Rejection–How many more of these must we see:  https://anticipat.com/pdf/2018-09-11_12481185_181628.pdf

THE UGLY

The PTAB Affirmed an Examiner’s 101 Rejection of Claims for an Electrostatic Clamp Monitoring System:  https://e-foia.uspto.gov/Foia/RetrievePdf?system=BPAI&flNm=fd2018001004-09-10-2018-1

Another Outrageous Decision from the PTAB Affirming an Examiner’s 101 Rejection of Claims in a Becton Dickenson Patent Application for Measuring the Amount of Blood in a Culture Vessel:  https://e-foia.uspto.gov/Foia/RetrievePdf?system=BPAI&flNm=fd2017005963-09-10-2018-1
