Precedential Opinion Panel issues decision about payment of inter partes review petition filing fee by wire transfer
Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. v. Monument Peak Ventures, LLC, IPR2021-00330, (PTAB Jan. 14, 2022) (Paper 19)
The Precedential Opinion Panel (POP) holds that Fedwire confirmation of payment constitutes sufficient evidence to demonstrate that the required fee accompanied an inter partes review petition under 35 U.S.C. § 312(a) and 37 C.F.R. § 42.103(a), and also constitutes sufficient evidence to demonstrate that “payment is received” under 37 C.F.R. § 42.103(b).
