PTAB Denies Institution of IPR Petitions Filed by Apple and Samsung Against e-Watch’s Wireless Camera Phone Patent07/01/2015
DiNovo Price is pleased to announce a victory on behalf of our client e-Watch, Inc. In May and July 2015, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board denied institution of petitions for inter partes review filed by Apple, Inc., Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., and Samsung Electronics America, Inc. against e-Watch’s wireless camera phone patent. The PTAB found that Apple and Samsung failed to establish “a reasonable likelihood of prevailing in showing the unpatentability” of any challenged claim of e-Watch’s U.S. Patent No. 7,365,871.
The e-Watch patent covers “image capture and transmission systems and is specifically directed to an image capture, compression, and transmission system for use in connection with land line and wireless telephone systems,” according to the decisions.
The cases are Apple, Inc. v. e-Watch, Inc., case numbers IPR2015-00411 and -00413, and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. and Samsung Electronics America, Inc. v. e-Watch, Inc., IPR2015-00612, before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
