Invalidation of Business Method Patent to Resolve Patent Infringement Case
Hodgson Russ attorneys successfully defended a pharmaceutical marketing company from claims of patent infringement. In this case, we initiated inter partes reexamination to invalidate the alleged patent. Based on our arguments, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office held the alleged patent invalid. The Patent Trial and Appeals Board upheld the invalidation on appeal. Our actions successfully resolved the patent infringement case without incurring the substantial expenses of discovery and litigation.
