Patent Owner's Successful Argument in Prosecution Helps PTAB Reject Live Nation's Bid for PGR.

February 1, 2018 - Representative Recent Cases

Weiss & Arons LLP successfully prosecuted a patent application for Complete Entertainment Resources ("CER") (U.S Patent No. 9,466,035).

After being hit with an anti-trust suit by CER, Live Nation retaliated with a Post Grant Review (PGR) of the CER patent. 

But the PTAB denied Live Nation's bid, because the examiner rejected very similar arguments during the prosecution of the CER patent.
