Challenge to Intel Data Evaluation Patent, among Reexamination Requests Filed Week of October 3, 2011

Scott Daniels | October 11, 2011

Intel obtained a patent last year for a method for sifting through data on “a support vector machine” to obtain certain information.  The method appears to have diverse applications, including the identification of disease-causing genes.  A request for reexamination of Intel’s patent was filed last Monday (see ex parte Request No. (1)). Though PTO documents do not disclose the identity of the Requester, it might be Health Discovery Corporation which is now attempting to provoke an interference with the Intel patent.

IBM requested reexamination of an Acqis computer security patent (see inter partes Request No. (3)). Acqis won a judgment against IBM earlier this year for $12 million in damages and $18.5 million in costs after a jury verdict of infringement of three other patents.  On Thursday IBM filed a declaratory judgment action against Acqis regarding the ‘814 patent.
