A look at Success Rates Before the PTAB on an Individual Rejection Basis,” has been published in the 100th anniversary edition of the Journal of the Patent and Trademark Office Society. Mr Pool also presented this paper at the 2018 annual meeting of the AIPLA. The paper provides a statistical and legal analysis of ex-parte appeal results of individual rejections.
