Attack on MobileMedia Ideas Audio Delivery Data Patent, among the Reexamination Requests Filed Week of February 27, 2012

Scott Daniels | March 5, 2012

Last Friday reexamination was requested of a MobileMedia Ideas audio data delivery patent, likely by HTC (see ex parte Request No. (14)).  In 2010 MobileMedia sued HTC in the Eastern District of Texas for infringement of that patent, as well as 10 other related data delivery patents. 

Bosch Security Systems has sought reexamination of four video surveillance patents owned by ObjectVideo (see inter partes Request Nos. (9), (10), (11), (12)).  An infringement action is pending in the Eastern District of Virginia between the companies, regarding these four patents.
