Samsung Requests Inter Partes Review of Five Multimedia Display Patents, Week of September 2, 2013

Scott Daniels and Cindy Chen | September 9, 2013

This past Thursday, Samsung requested inter partes review of five patents, owned by Virginia Innovation Sciences, that claim methods and computer readable media for converting video signals on a mobile terminal so that they may be reproduced on other display terminals (see inter partes review Request Nos. (8) through (12).  Virginia Innovation has sued Samsung in the Eastern District of Virginia for infringement of the patents.  Last month, Samsung filed a motion for summary judgment that the Virginia Innovation patents were invalid over the prior art (“VIS accused Samsung’s products of infringing the asserted claims based on their supposed use of well-known industry standard specification, notwithstanding that these same industry standard specifications were prior art”; emphasis in original).  The District Court is likely to move more quickly than the Patent Office, in this race of filings.

Microsoft requested inter partes review of two information storage and retrieval patents (see inter partes review Request Nos. (4) & (5)).  The owner of the patents, Enfish, has sued Microsoft in the Central District of California for infringement.

The ex parte reexamination request filed Tuesday by Brookwood against a silicone coated web patent owned Nextec Applications (see ex parte Request No. (2)) is interesting because there is parallel infringement action pending against the United States in the Court of Federal Claims.  How might the Court consider a stay request?
