Fractus, S.A. Patent Reexaminations Ordered
In large patent litigations it has become more likely to see defendants request reexamination of the patents asserted. Some of the advantages of doing so were outlined in prior posts.
Fractus, S.A., is a company headquartered in Spain that sells and licenses technology relating to fractal antennas. Fractus asserted nine patents against a number of defendants last year. Defendants Kyocera, Samsung, and HTC have collectively requested inter partes reexamination of each of the asserted patents. Reexaminations have been ordered for each patent and some merger considerations are being made to combine certain reexamination requests. No first office actions appear to have been entered into Public PAIR on any of the 11 patent reexaminations as of today, but they should be coming shortly.
In case you are interested, the Fractus patent reexaminations include the following:
95/000586 – Multilevel Antennae – US Pat. 7,397,431
95/000587 – Loaded Antenna – US Pat. 7,312,762
95/000588 – Multilevel Antennae – US Pat. 7,394,432
95/000589 – Multilevel Antennae – US Pat. 7,015,868
95/000590 – Multilevel Antennae – US Pat. 7,411,556
95/000591 – Multilevel Antennae – US Pat. 7,123,208
95/000592 – Space Filling Miniature Antennae – US Pat. 7,202,822
95/000593 – Space Filling Miniature Antennae – US Pat. 7,148,850
95/000595 – Multilevel Antennae – US Pat. 7,528,782
95/001482 – Multilevel Antennae – US Pat. 7,397,431
95/001483 – Multilevel Antennae – US Pat. 7,394,432
I will update this list over time because there are a few patents that have another reexamination request on file in the Patent Office and sometimes these requests are merged.
