Inventors Can Challenge their Own Patents – But Only at the PTAB

by Dennis Crouch The traditional rule of assignor estoppel prevents prior owners of a patent from later challenging the validity of the patent.  The doctrine stems from old property law cases and is based upon the idea is that the assignor “should not be permitted to sell something and later to assert that what was sold is worthless, all to the detriment of the assignee.” Diamond Scientific Co. v. Ambico, Inc., 848 F.2d 1220 (Fed. Cir. 1988); see Westinghouse Elec. & Mfg. Co. v. Formica Ins. Co....

The Federal Circuit Strides Forward with No-Opinion-Judgments

by Dennis Crouch Capella Photonics, Inc., v. Cisco Systems, Inc., SCT Docket No. 18-304 (Supreme Court 2018) (on petition for writ of certiorari) Capella Photonics has asserted its patents covering wavelength-separating technology using array of “fiber collimators” in at least ten separate infringement lawsuits, including a still pending action against Cisco filed in 2014.  After being sued, Cisco reached-out to the USPTO seeking an inter partes review of two patents.  RE42,678 and RE42368.  The...

WIRTW #512 (the “war pigs” edition)

I spent last Saturday night at Crocker Park, in Cleveland's western suburbs, watching Fake ID rock that luxury shopping mecca harder than I dare say it's ever been rocked before. I could have watched Norah and her bandmates play all night long. I had to settle for an hour and 40 minutes of dad-pride. Including this one—a scorching cover of Black Sabbath's classic, "War Pigs." Here's what I read this week: Discrimination Discrimination vs. Reality — via Heather Bussing at HR Examiner with John S...

Supply-Chain Security

Earlier this month, the Pentagon stopped selling phones made by the Chinese companies ZTE and Huawei on military bases because they might be used to spy on their users. It's a legitimate fear, and perhaps a prudent action. But it's just one instance of the much larger issue of securing our supply chains. All of our computerized systems are deeply international, and we have no choice but to trust the companies and governments that touch those systems. And while we can ban a few specific product...

Federal Circuit to PTAB: Again, Explain Your Reasoning

Arista Networks v. Cisco Systems (Fed. Cir. 2018) In what is mecoming a more regular outcome, the Federal Circuit has again vacated a PTAB IPR holding — holding that the USPTO’s panel of Administrative Patent Judges failed to “adequately explain its reasoning on a point that was central to its analysis.” This time the case involves a PTAB finding for the patentee — that the IPR challenger Arista had not proven obviousness (for several challenged claims of Cisco’s Patent No. 8,051,211).  The iden...

Time for Lawyers to Review Their Social Media Marketing Tactics

The questions surrounding the legitimacy of social media posts by fake news organizations is driving big changes in the way businesses will use social platforms to connect with consumers. Facebook recently announced that it was changing its algorithm to prioritize posts from friends and family over business posts. Other platforms are examining their feed priority mechanics as well. In other words, organic reach via social media is pretty much dead. This means it is imperative for lawyers to chan...

Symposium: Comity tonight — conflicts of law in cross-border data demands

Eric Wenger is the director of cybersecurity and privacy policy at Cisco Systems. This term, the Supreme Court considers two cases addressing government access to electronic data in the hands of third-party providers that prompted Cisco and other leading technology companies to submit amicus briefs. In United States v. Carpenter, we questioned whether a blanket rule extinguishing user privacy rights in data shared with third parties makes sense given the rising importance of cloud-based services...

Technology Remains an Afterthought for Many Within the Legal System

Back in late September, the Court of the Future Network, in partnership with the Institut des hautes études sur la justice and the Cyberjustice Laboratory, organised its annual Court tour which – this year – took place in California, home of Silicone Valley and many technological innovators. For this very reason, the tour took a technological turn and focussed on some of the key technological issues confronting courts, such as: The paperless courtroom: digital documents and evidence display Cyb...

Written Description, Disclosed Embodiments, and BRI

By Dennis Crouch The vast majority of written description problems arise when the patentee amends or adds claims with limitations not found in the original claim set and using language that does not directly map to specification disclosure.  In Cisco Systems v. Cirrex (Fed. Cir. 2017), the Federal Circuit provides an example of this in practice. [The Decision: Cisco] After the PTO initiated an inter partes reexamination, the patentee (Cirrex) dropped the original claims (1-34) and added new clai...

TC Heartland Law Professor Amicus Brief

In TC Heartland, the accused infringer has asked the Supreme Court to reset the law of venue and give effect to the statutory statement that infringement actions be brought either (1) “in the judicial district where the defendant resides” or (2)” where the defendant has committed acts of infringement and has a regular and established place of business.”  28 U.S.C. § 1400(b).   In its 1957 Fourco decision, the Supreme Court affirmatively answered this question.  However, Fourco has been undermine...

Unwired Planet v. Apple: Fault and Patent Infringement

By Jason Rantanen Unwired Planet, LLC v. Apple Inc. (Fed. Cir. July 22, 2016) Download Unwired Planet Panel: Moore (author), Bryson, Reyna Last week, the Federal Circuit issued two opinions, both written by Judge Moore, dealing with what I refer to as “fault” in patent law: the degree of culpability the accused infringer possessed with respect to the issue of patent infringement.*  Although the cases involve different legal doctrines–WBIP v. Kohler involves willful infringement under § 284 and U...

The Move to Visuals (And Why You Should Care)

Social Media Camp is the national conference on social media that attracts international speakers and attendees. At this year’s event, virtually all presenters agreed that images and video are taking over the internet. What do they mean by this? Consider the following: YouTube is now the second largest search engine – just behind Google – and may soon surpass it. (Don’t feel badly for Google as they own YouTube). Google is now building four-story data centre buildings to house the servers requi...

Supreme Court Patent Update: 271(e) Safe Harbor

by Dennis Crouch Look for opinions in Halo/Stryker and Cuozzo by the end June 2016. Post Grant Admin: While we await Cuozzo, a set of follow-on cases continue to pile-up.  My speculation is that the Supreme Court will delay any decision in those cases until it finalizes the outcome of Cuozzo. With a host of new friend-of-the-court briefs and interesting constitutional questions, MCM v. HP is perhaps best positioned for certiorari.  Additional pending cases include Versata v. SAP (scope of CBM re...

Reasonable Royalty for Industry Standard Patents

by Dennis Crouch The Australian governmental research agency CSIRO has been the plaintiff in a number of E.D. Texas patent cases over the past decade — repeatedly enforcing its wireless local-area-network (LAN) U.S. Patent No. 5,487,069 that has been held to cover WiFi (802.11a and 802.11g). After a long battle, CISCO stipulated to liability and validity of the patent.  In a bench trial, the court found that a reasonable royalty was about $.83 per WiFi product sold by Cisco.  On appeal, however,...

Guest Post -- Keeping an Eye on Patent Trolls

The Question Worth Pondering: Innovation Provokers or Idea Thieves? By Ralf Boscheck* -- In the past five years Cisco and J.C. Penney have spent close to $350 million fending off demands from patent trolls, which are more politely known as 'patent assertion entities,' or PAEs. In February, a court in Texas ordered Apple to pay $532 million to a PAE. These are just two of the more high-profile reasons why both the US and the European Union have recognized that the laws and regulations around inte...

De-Automate Your Destruction

An Internet connection can automate damage to your law practice and reputation. A lawyer can’t practice without the Internet but there are ways to reduce the opportunities to be attacked. There are common applications that have become so problematic as attack points that lawyers may want to uninstall or at least wall off this software. I’m talking in particular about Adobe’s Flash and Oracle’s Java apps. There are lots of bugaboos on the Internet but let’s focus on these two. You could throw in ...
