LG Challenge to Four Lighting Patents among the Reexamination Requests Filed Week of September 4, 2012

Scott Daniels | September 10, 2012

LG has frequently resorted to reexamination as part of its litigation strategy to defend against patent infringement allegations.  So it was no surprise last week when LG requested reexamination of four patents related to LED and/or LCD technology (see inter partes Request Nos. (2) & (3) and ex parte Request Nos. (6) & (13)).  The patents are owned by Industrial Technology Research Institute that has sued LG in New Jersey for infringement of the patents.

Research In Motion, also a frequent requester, sought reexamination of three wireless communications patents owned by Innovative Sonic (see inter partes Request Nos. (14), ((20) & (24)).  The two companies are involved in an infringement action in Dallas.

CBS Interactive requested reexamination of a Microsoft information transmission patent that issued in July (see inter partes Request No. (8)).

Finally, our friends at Troll Busters were busy attacking two adenovirus patents (see ex parte Request Nos. (7) & ((8)).
