In Amkor Technology, Inc. v. Tessera, Inc., IPR201-00242, Paper 117, (April 14, 2014), the patent owner filed a terminal disclaimer of the remainder of the patent term (which was going to expire later in the year), to force the Board to apply the construed meaning of the claims, instead of the broadest reasonable interpretation (arguing that expiration of the patent prevented use of the BRI).  The patent owner believed that when the contrued meaning is applied, the inter partes review should be terminated.  The Board authorized the parties to brief the issues.


DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
