After the surge in complaints last week, things returned to steady state this week, with plaintiffs filing 58 complaints and patent applicants filing 26 petitions (a post-grant review [PGR] and 25 Interpartes reviews [IPRs]).

A surprising number of challenges against semiconductor-related patents asserted by NPEs (most backed by litigation such as Starboard Value, Vector Capital, and Cambridge Partners) were initiated this week that had multi-year applicants K.Mizra and Blue Spike new complaints, Coinbase filed a declaratory judgment against Frequent Filer and NPE Modern Font Applications, and a number of pharmaceutical lawsuits have been initiated that require consideration.
