U.S. Patent Office to Reopen Align Patent Reexaminations

Good news, everyone!

We received notice from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that two of ex parte reexaminations that concluded in Align’s favor earlier this year have been ordered to reopen by the USPTO Director.

Last month, we published a press release about the USPTO’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) decision to cancel all of the challenged claims in Align’s U.S. Patent 6,699,037—a huge coup for Team ClearCorrect!

As anticipated, the PTAB’s decision helped bolster our efforts with our other Patent Office proceedings and we expect more reexaminations to reopen with favorable conclusions from the USPTO.

Can’t get enough of all this crazy patent stuff? Maybe you’re in a Fantasy Patent-Law League? Check out our blog post about our proceedings at the USPTO for more details and links to legal documents (oooh!).
