Federal Circuit Win in IPR Appeal for Best Buy, Target, and Walmart
Today the Federal Circuit affirmed a PTAB decision that Klarquist had obtained for clients Best Buy Co., Target Corporation, and Walmart, Inc. The PTAB had determined that all claims in a patent which had been asserted against Klarquist’s clients were unpatentable as obvious. The patent related to a system for purchasing in retail stores products that are available online. The Federal Circuit found that the patent owner had forfeited the arguments that he made on appeal by not properly raising them before the PTAB.
