There was no error in an inter partes review decision finding obviousness in a communication system patent because the board properly relied on materials in the record in its claim construction and obviousness analysis.

An inventor of a communication system failed to show any error in an IPR proceeding which found his invention obvious, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has held. The board’s claim construction and motivation to combine analysis were supported by the record (Shamoon v. Resideo Technologies, Inc., August 8, 2023, Newman, P.).
