Takeaway: Where the Board institutes IPR of certain claims and denies institution of others that are more important to a Patent Owner, the Patent Owner might consider terminating the IPR proceedings by requesting adverse judgment after the § 315(b) bar has run on the petitioner to prevent the petitioner from seeking to institute IPR in a follow-on petition on the claims that were not instituted in the first IPR.
