After an oral hearing at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, Forge IP has obtained a reversal of all rejections that were issued for a patent application owned by client Prismaflex International.
The patent relates to a novel communication board in which a fabric display medium is easily and securely mounted via a hook and loop fastener system. The innovative design facilitates large, easily-assembled, rugged displays. The Examiner had originally rejected the claims as obvious over prior art systems for mounting such displays. Prismaflex filed an appeal, along with a request for an oral hearing, during which Forge IP presented arguments in support of a reversal. After the hearing, the Board did just that, issuing a decision that overturned all rejections.
A Notice of Allowance is expected to issue in due course.
