A recent IP Law Daily Wrap Up highlighted Veeam Software Corporation's success in inter partes review proceedings against Symantec. The PTAB determined the claims of Symantec's patent related to restoration of computer systems backed up on storage managers in the instance of a computer failure were unpatentable as anticipated by prior art. The Board then denied Symantec's motion to amend the claims of the patent. Lori A. Gordon is noted as the lead attorney for Veeam Software in these proceedings. The full Sterne Kessler team included Mark Fox Evens, Michael Q. Lee, Byron L. Pickard, Jonathan M. Strang, Daniel Block, Peter H. Dykstra, Ph.D., and Lauren Schleh.
