Changing the “broadest reasonable interpretation” standard of claim construction is a job for Congress, not the Federal Circuit, at least according to two opinions released by the Federal Circuit last week in In re: Cuozzo Speed Technologies, LLC, No. 2014-1301.
On June 16, the Federal Circuit for the first time vacated a portion of a PTAB decision resulting from an IPR proceeding. The Federal Circuit found that the PTAB gave an “unreasonably broad construction” to different phrases in the claims and remanded. Microsoft Corp. v. Proxyconn, Inc., 2014-1542, -1543 (Fed. Cir. June 16, 2015).
