In re Google Technology Holdings, LLC

On November 13, 2020, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) affirmed a decision by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) sustaining the rejection of the Examiner's final rejection of various claims under 35 U.S.C. §103 in an application by Google. In clarifying the difference between the doctrines of "waiver" and "forfeiture," the CAFC held that Google had forfeited the arguments put forth on appeal because those arguments were not presented to the Examiner or PTAB. Therefore, the CAFC affirmed the PTAB's decision.
