Patent Filings Roundup: Intel Cancels Qualcomm Claims on Remand; New Rideshare, Cloud Storage NPE Campaigns Launched

patent filings - https://depositphotos.com/46023047/stock-photo-lawsuit-word-smashing-glass.htmlSome new assertion entities popped up this week, including a high-stakes campaign filed by LS Cloud Storage Technologies LLC (a Waco vintage, if from 2016) on a couple of data-sharing patents (one very old, one somewhat new, U.S. 6,549,988 and U.S. 10,154,092). There was also a new ride-sharing NPE campaign from Fare Technologies LLC (another older LLC with apparent ties to monetizers) against Uber and Lyft on just one patent, RE46727.

By the Numbers: the district courts saw 70 new patent complaints and another 106 terminated cases this week; the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) had their now-usual 25 petitions. That included a number of challenges and suits by Magnetar entities like Arigna, Sonrai, and Speir; Ericsson filed against NPE K.Mizra (who appears to be asserting former IBM patents by way of Daedalus Blue); STM Micro challenged a patent held by Purdue University; and Qualcomm, Global Foundries, and other semiconductor companies continued to file numerous inter partes reviews (IPRs) against NPEs wielding semiconductor patents. The rest of the patent litigation was rounded out by the usual IP Edge, DynaIP, Equitable, and Raymond Anthony Joao file-and-settle detritus.

Intel Wins Versus Qualcomm on Remand to the Board: The Board on remand decided again that all the claims of a number of Qualcomm patents challenged by Intel were unpatentable, after the Federal Circuit remanded the earlier decisions related to Administrative Procedures Act (APA) arguments that the patent owner wasn’t given sufficient notice of the Board’s positions.  Effectively, the Board adopted a varied claim construction that wasn’t fully briefed; it allowed supplemental briefing on remand and came to, more or less, the same conclusion it had before.  They did so, nonetheless, amidst extensive briefing and a lengthy consideration of the terms. It’s now almost certainly headed back to the Federal Circuit.
