JUST THE STATS:
IPR AND CBM FINAL DECISIONS BY TECHNOLOGY

Key Finding: This chart shows the technology areas for the patents for which the PTAB issued final decisions. Two technology categories—electrical/computer and data processing—have been at issue in about 60% of all final decisions issued in IPR and CBM proceedings through 2015. The next four categories combined—optics, mechanical, communications, and biomechanical—account for only about 29% of all final decisions.
