Claim Indefiniteness To Provide An End Around SAS?

In Samsung Electronics America, Inc. v. Prisua Engineering Corp., the Fed. Cir. confirmed that, outside of the context of a motion to amend, the PTAB cannot cancel claims for indefiniteness in an IPR proceeding. Specifically, the Court found that if the PTAB cannot ascertain the scope of a claim with reasonable certainty for purposes of assessing patentability, the proper course for the PTAB to follow "is to decline to institute the IPR or, if the indefiniteness issue affects only certain claims, to conclude that it could not reach a decision on the merits with respect to whether petitioner had established the unpatentability of those claims under sections 102 or103. It would not be proper for the Board to cancel claims on a ground that is unavailable in an IPR."
