Challenges to Two MobileMedia Ideas Patents, among the Reexamination Requests Filed Week of April 11, 2011

Scott Daniels | April 18, 2011

Reexamination was requested for two MobileMedia Ideas patents.  PTO dockets show that RIM filed one of the requests, but are unclear about who filed the second, though that request was quite likely filed by RIM as well (see ex parte Request Nos. (3) & (13)).  MobileMedia has sued RIM for infringement of these patents in the Eastern District of Texas.

A very important request, reported in a parallel post today, is Google’s second request for reexamination of an Oracle patent (see ex parte Request No. (20)). 

Abbott Diabetes Care has requested reexamination of two DexCom analyte sensor patents (see ex parte Request Nos. (8) & (18)).
