Forge IP Wins Patent Appeal After Oral Hearing

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.
