Patent Filings Roundup: Centripetal Sees More IPRs; Microsoft Engineer Sues Seven in Waco

patent filings - https://depositphotos.com/3834376/stock-photo-lawsuit.htmlAnother light summer week in the patent world saw just 19 new petitions (all inter partes reviews [IPRs]), with 65 new district court cases (roughly average), including 75 newly terminated cases.  Five petitions were denied, with six granted; Peloton appears to have settled their dispute with Ifit (and dismissed the five related IPRs and district court suit); Peloton has been targeted by a few others. Flexiworld expanded its campaign against a number of Chinese and other foreign entities; Zoom was sued again by yet another York Eggleston subsidiary; and, after years of dormancy, more new Empire IP campaigns (AR Designs and Nearby Systems] signal the return of a once-frequent repeat player on the monetization scene.

Centripetal, after Federal Circuit Reversal, Sees IPRs from Other Industry Players: Litigious small cybersecurity firm Centripetal, who recently testified before Congress the same day a $2.75 billion judgment was reversed on a judicial ethics issue, has received a few additional IPR challenges, one from Keysight and one from Cisco. Palo Alto, Cisco, and Keysight, of the six or so defendants Centripetal has yet sued, have now all challenged patents. As they return to the Virginia court under a new judge and relitigate the initial judgment, it will be interesting to see if any background licensing discussions or other litigations provoke further challenges.

Current Microsoft Program Manager Sues Seven: A new Waco litigation was launched last week by company Disintermediation Services on at least five patents, three of which issued relatively recently (11 million series), all of which related to real-time communications systems (i.e., teleconferencing software). Of most interest is that, of the three co-inventors (and co-founders of Disintermediation Services), one remains an engineer at Microsoft, and at least one other spent ten years there before leaving to take another position. The suits are against seven smaller companies, including Continually Ltd., Snatch Group Limited, Hello UMI SL DC, Crisp IM SAS, Alive Technologies, Inc., Forethought Technologies, Inc., and 4walls.com.
