Patent Owner Goes For An Abstract Argument To Defend Its Patent
Oil States Energy Services lost a patent in a process authorized by Congress (inter partes review). Its last hope to fight off the patent challenger (Greene’s Energy Group) comes in the form of an abstract argument about the structure of government.
Oil States Energy claims the type of court that took away its patent – not a real judicial court but a court created by Congress – did not have the power to do so.
