Scott Daniels | September 15, 2010

Last week saw two blockbuster sets of filings – Shared Marketing Services filed ex parte requests against five eComSystems patents (6) to (10), and Illinois Tool Works filed ex parte requests against seven patents belonging to Digi-Star (13) to (19).  Illinois Tool has appeared in many reexaminations over the years.  In both instances, the respective parties are in litigation.

Two other ex parte reexamination requests may prove to be commercially significant, one filed against a Hitachi semiconductor patent (25), and another filed against a Kubota tractor patent (30).  The names of the companies that filed these requests are not apparent from the files.
