Kyocera Attack on Two Scalable Display Patents, among the Post-Grant Requests Filed Week of October 1, 2012

Scott Daniels | October 9, 2012

Last week Kyocera took advantage of the new post-grant provisions of the AIA by requesting inter partes review of two SoftView patents claiming systems for creating scalable displays of Internet content on mobile devices (see inter partes review Request Nos. (1) & (4).  SoftView has sued Kyocera and Apple, among others, in Delaware for infringement of the patents. In May 2011, Apple initiated an inter partes reexamination of one of the two patents, U.S. Patent No. 7,831,926; though a non-final rejection is pending in that reexamination, the patentability of a majority of SoftView’s ‘926 claims has been confirmed.  The PTO is likely to consider merging the new inter partes review with the earlier inter partes reexamination.  An inter partes review request of a third SoftView patent in the litigation, U.S. Patent No. 7,028,257, might be in the offing.

Inter partes review was also requested by Micron of three semiconductor patents owned by the University of Illinois.  The University and the company are involved in an infringement action in Illinois.
