JDS Uniphase Seeks Inter Partes Review of Two Optical Switching Patents, Week of June 3, 2013

Scott Daniels and Cindy Chen | June 10, 2013

JDS Uniphase requested inter partes review of two Fiber, LLC. optical switching apparatus patents (see inter partes review Request Nos. (1) & (11)).  Fiber has sued Ciena and NEC for infringement of the patents.  The latter two companies are presumably JDS customers.

IBS requested inter partes review of Illumina Cambridge’s U.S. Patent No. 7,057,026, that claims labeled nucleotides (see inter partes review Request No. (3)).  IBS had previously filed a petition requesting inter partes review of the ‘026 patent (IPR2013-00128).  The previous petition relied on a different primary reference than last week’s petition.
