Challenge to Round Rock RFID Patent, among the Reexamination Requests Filed Week of January 16, 2012

Scott Daniels | January 23, 2012

In September an unidentified party requested reexamination of four RFID patents owned by Round Rock Research.  Last Tuesday, reexamination was requested of another Round Rock RFID patent, Reissue 41,562, again by an anonymous party (see ex parte Request No. (1)). 

Traditionally, reexamination has been requested of a substantial number electronics and Internet patents, but it is much less common for pharmaceutical and medical delivery patents.  In recent weeks, though, that pattern seems to be changing, with more reexamination requests directed to pharmaceutical and medical delivery patents.  That trend continued last week when reexamination was requested for two patents owned by Monosol claiming film to be used in drug delivery systems (see ex parte Request Nos. (3) & (4)).  Monosol has sued BioDelivery in New Jersey for infringement of the patents.

The following inter partes requests were filed:
