DiNovo Price is pleased to announce a victory on behalf of our client Papst Licensing GmbH & Co., KG. In May, June, and July 2017, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board denied institution of four petitions for inter partes review filed by one or more of Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., LG Electronics, Inc., and ZTE (USA), Inc. against Papst’s patents on interface devices for communication between camera phones and computers. The PTAB found that the petitioners had not established a reasonable likelihood that it would prevail with respect to any of the challenged claims of Papst’s U.S. Patent Nos. 6,865,449; 8,504,746; 8,966,144; and 9,189,437.
The Papst patents cover “an interface device for communication between a computer host device and a data transmit/receive device,” according to the decisions.
The cases are Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. LG Electronics, Inc., and ZTE (USA), Inc. v. Papst Licensing GmbH & Co., KG, case number IPR2017-00448; Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. v.
