In Search of the Real Party in Interest

In Intellectual Ventures Management LLC v Xilinx, Inc., IPR2012-000018, Paper 12 (January 24, 2013) the PTAB rejected Xilinx argument that Inter Partes Reviews should not be declared in  IPR2012-00018 (Patent 7,566,960), IPR2012-00019 (Patent 8,062,968), IPR2012-00020 (Patent 8,058,897), and IPR2012-00023 (Patent 7,994,609), finding that Xilinx has failed to sufficiently demonstrate that IVM has not named all real parties in interest for any of the four proceedings.
