Sprint Requests Reexamination for Three More Comcast Patents, Week of April 29, 2013

Scott Daniels and Cindy Chen | May 6, 2013

Last Monday we reported that Sprint had requested ex parte reexamination of two telecommunications data accessing patents owned by Comcast IP HoldingsSprint has since requested reexamination of three more Comcast patents (see ex parte Request Nos. (2), (3) & (8)).  The two companies are involved in an infringement action in Delaware, related to the patents.

Motorola Mobility has filed inter partes review petitions against two Internet content display patents owned by SoftView (see inter partes review Request Nos. (1) & (2)).  Softview has sued Apple and AT&T Mobility for infringement of the patents.

Oracle has requested inter partes review of two Clouding IP patents (see inter partes review Request Nos. (5) & (6)).  Oracle had previously filed a petition for inter partes review of the ‘799 patent, challenging a number of claims of the ‘799 patent (see IPR2013-00073). In the instant petition, Oracle is now seeking review of the remaining three independent claims of the ‘799 patent that were not addressed in the earlier petition.  The second petition follows an earlier request for inter partes review of the ‘891 patent, in which Oracle requested review of claims 1 to 8 of the patent (see IPR2013-00100). In the instant petition, Oracle seeks review of independent claim 9.
