The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) trials have become a major factor in resolving patent disputes. To see what is going on, you may want to check out the USPTO statistics: PTAB recent statistics and graphical AIA trial statistics and PTAB/BPAI statistics 1998-2013. If you have questions on the statistics, the USPTO recommends calling 571-272-7822.
