Microsoft Challenge to NetView Patent, among the Reexamination Requests filed Week of November 7, 2011

Scott Daniels | November 14, 2011

Inter partes reexamination continues to be the weapon of choice for major Internet/software companies.  Last week Microsoft requested reexamination of U.S. Patent No. 7,251,776 owned by NetView (see inter partes Request No. (1)).  NetView is pursuing an action against Microsoft in Massachusetts, asserting infringement of the ‘776 patent. 

Inter partes reexamination was also requested against U.S. Patent No. 7,426,264 which claims methods for mobile messaging and which is owned by Intellect Wireless (see inter partes Request No. (6)).   It is not yet clear who filed the Request, but Intellect Wireless has previously sued Apple, Heio, HTC, LG, Samsung, Sanyo, T-Mobile, and Virgin Mobile for infringement of related patents.
