NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C., Aug. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- On May 18, 2020, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board ("PTAB") handed victory to Vacation Finder, LLC, reversing the patent examiner's rejections. The patent application, entitled, "Methods of Reserving and Managing Vacation Rental Properties," will issue as U.S. Patent No. 10,755,203 on August 25, 2020.
"A PTAB panel, usually composed of three administrative patent judges, considered the patent examiner's rejections and concluded that our client had indeed invented and claimed a new and useful invention that combats fraud in the vacation rental industry.

"We're pleased to have assisted our client receive this significant patent, a cornerstone to its business model."
