Recently, the Federal Circuit held that a newsgroup post was a printed publication under § 102. Suffolk Techs., LLC v. AOL Inc., No. 2013-1392, 2014 WL 2179274, at *5-6 (Fed. Cir. May 27, 2014). In Suffolk, while there was no evidence in the record that any person of ordinary skill (other than the post’s author) had actually accessed the specific newsgroup on which the alleged prior art was posted, the court was persuaded by evidence that persons of ordinary skill used newsgroups generally at that time. Id. at *5. The court also held that the reference was sufficiently disseminated because the newsgroup was organized by subject matter (so a person interested in the topic could find the post at issue and others like it), the newsgroup’s purpose was to facilitate discussion of information in its posts, and several users had in fact accessed and responded to the post. Id.

In contrast, the Federal Circuit vacated a summary judgment of invalidity based on a paper posted on an FTP server where the record appeared to show the paper was not a printed publication under § 102. SRI Int’l, Inc. v. Internet Sec. Sys., Inc., 511 F.3d 1186, 1196-97 (Fed. Cir. 2008). In SRI Int’l, the public was not notified of the paper’s existence, and the nature of the FTP server did not inform interested artisans that the paper or like information was present on the server. Id. Therefore, the court held the record did not support the summary judgment ruling that the paper was accessible by the public. Id.

SRI Int'l, Inc. v. Internet Sec. Sys., Inc., 511 F.3d 1186, 85 USPQ2d 1489 (Fed. Cir. 2008) 2152.02(e)
