PTAB Victory Against Apple on Behalf of Papst Licensing Relating to Patents on Interface Devices for Communication Between Camera Phones and Computers04/01/2018
DiNovo Price is pleased to announce a victory on behalf of our client Papst Licensing GmbH & Co., KG. On April 13 and 26, 2018, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board issued its final written decisions on two petitions for inter partes review filed by Apple, Inc. against Papst’s U.S. Patent Nos. 8,504,746 (“’746 patent”) and 9,189,437 (“’437 patent”) relating to interface devices for communication between camera phones and computers. The PTAB found that Apple “has not demonstrated by a preponderance of the evidence” that the challenged claims of the ’746 patent and claims 1, 4-6, 9-16, 18, 30, 32, and 34 of the ’437 patent are unpatentable.
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 Apple, Inc. v. Papst Licensing GmbH & Co., KG., case numbers IPR2016-01842 and -01863, before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
