The Board has received 483 petitions for IPR since September 16, 2012, a rate of 9.29 per week. Thus, the number of petitions for IPR has relatively consistently increased month-to-month. The number of IPRs instituted reflected in the table below includes more than just decisions on the merits of petitions. The graph reflects termination decisions as well, and therefore includes 15 settlements or terminations before a Rule 42.108 decision was issued by the Board.
