Request for Reexamination of GE’s ‘985 Wind Turbine Patent among the Requests Filed the Week of October 25th

Scott Daniels | November 3, 2010

Last January the U.S. International Trade Commission issued a Final Determination that Mitsubishi Heavy’s importation of wind turbines did not violate Section 337, as had been alleged by General Electric.  Part of the ITC’s Determination was a holding that there was no “domestic industry” with respect to GE’s U.S. Patent No. 6,921,985 because GE’s own turbines did not practice any claim of that patent.  A request for reexamination (Inter partes Request No. 6 below) has now been filed against GE’s ‘985 patent.  The ITC also found that GE’s two other patents – U.S. Patent Nos. 5,083,039 & 7,321,221 – in the investigation were not infringed by Mitsubishi’s turbines.

Also of special interest are requests for reexamination (Inter partes Request Nos. 2 & 3 below) filed by Hewlett-Packard and IBM against two ACQIS patents.  ACQIS has sued HP and IBM, among others, in the Eastern District of Texas for infringement of those patents.  We also note requests were filed (Inter partes Request Nos. 4 & 5 below) against a Netlist patent.  Netlist has sued Google for infringement of that patent.
