Fifty-Three Patents Challenged, Week of December 2, 2013

Scott Daniels and Cindy Chen | December 9, 2013

The number of new patent challenges continues to accelerate – last week saw thirty-two requests for inter partes review, three for post-grant review, and eighteen for ex parte reexamination.  Most notably, Apple, either alone or with one or more co-requesters, attacked six patents owned by either Arendi, THX, or VirnetX (see inter partes review Request Nos. (1), (4), (5), (25), (26), & (28)).  In each instance, Apple is being sued for infringement of the respective patent now being challenged.  Apple was also the target of an anonymous 180-page request for ex parte reexamination (see ex parte Request No. (7)) against its U.S. Patent No. 8,463,238 claiming a mobile device base station.

There is also an increasing pattern of companies filing joint requests.  For instance, Samsung, LG and HTC teamed up to request inter partes review of two content delivery patents owned by Affinity Labs of Texas (see inter partes review Request Nos. (6) & (8)).

Toshiba Samsung Storage requested inter partes review of two LG recording media patents (see inter partes review Request Nos. (2) & (3)).  The companies are involved in an infringement action in Delaware.

Three network communication patents that are owned by Straight Path IP Group and that are the subject of parallel U.S. International Trade Commission and District Court infringement proceedings are the subject of inter partes review requests filed by Sony (see inter partes request Nos. (21), (22) & (23)).

Valeo likewise filed inter partes review requests against four patents that are owned by Magna Electronics and that claim imaging systems for vehicles (see inter partes review Request Nos. (15), (16), (17) & (20)).  Magna has sued Valeo in Michigan for infringement of the patents.
