Attack on vTRAX Patent among Reexamination Requests Filed Week of August 22, 2011

Scott Daniels | August 29, 2011

The sole business of vTRAX appears to be the enforcement of a single patent, U.S. Patent No. 6,865,268 covering systems for call-tracking in virtual call-centers.  Pending in the Southern District of Florida are two actions in which vTRAX has accused Siemens, CSX, Avaya and a number of others of infringing the ‘268 patent.  Now, a reexamination has been requested of the ‘268 patent (see ex parte Request No. (15)).  We strongly expect that the defendants will soon move to stay both cases, particularly in view of the Southern District of Florida’s record of granting such motions.
