On October 16, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) issued a precedential decision in Corephotonics, Ltd. v. Apple Inc. affirming most of a final written decision by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) that invalidated dual-aperture camera system patents owned by Corephotonics. The Federal Circuit nixed the patent owner’s arguments that asserted prior art references were not analogous art but remanded to the PTAB for further explanation of its ruling, as the Board may have misconstrued the pertinent problem addressed by one reference.
