"The request for preliminary injunction will likely come out of the "Trade Secret" case if they choose to ask for it."
ahaha IF??? they should of already asked for one. the fact it selling to more places does not bode well for nlst...
I will remind everyone again that there are in fact two separate lawsuits that impacts ULLtraDIMM.
The "Trade Secret" lawsuit is against Diablo only, while the "Patent Infringement" lawsuit is against Diablo and Sandisk (SMART Storage). The request for preliminary injunction will likely come out of the "Trade Secret" case if they choose to ask for it. Netlist already stated the following in an old SEC filing: "After Netlist deposes the two former Diablo employees identified in the whistleblower letter (and questions the suspected author of the letter), Netlist will bring a motion for preliminary injunction to put a stop to Diablo’s misappropriation and infringement..."
Just out tonight. So again, between IBM, SuperMicro, Huawei and I assume others, this product is going to sell. This pushes the urgency to handle this litigation.
google fenwick continuing application. first hit gives some strategy reasons. seems like it could be a lot of things. little complex though to analyze what their reasoning might be. Nontheless, it is strategy!!!
"This application claims the benefit of U.S. provisional patent application Ser. No. 61/538,775, filed Sep. 23, 2011, titled “A METHOD OF USING STANDARD FLASH CONTROLLERS TO IMPLEMENT FLASH RAID STORAGE FUNCTIONALITY” and is a continuation-in-part (CIP) of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 12/240,916, filed Sep. 29, 2008, titled “NON-VOLATILE MEMORY MODULE,” which is a continuation of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 12/131,873, filed Jun. 2, 2008, which claims the benefit of U.S. provisional patent application Ser. No. 60/941,586, filed Jun. 1, 2007, the contents of all of which are incorporated herein by reference in their entirety."
as i have pointed out before this isn't new by any means, zzzzzzz
Perhaps it's related to an earlier letter where Netlist stated:
"Applicant respectfully urges that additional and/or alternative reasons for allowance may exist apart from those advanced by the Examiner and the Applicant, and these reasons may each be independently sufficient to establish the patentability of the allowed claims.
Applicant respectfully reserves the right to introduce, articulate, or otherwise comment on any such additional reasons for allowance as may be appropriate in any future proceedings concerning the one or more claimed embodiments."
Well, the patent application 13/559476 have been in the public domain for a long time, published since 4/4/13 I believe. Most people just don't check the status regularly.
Yes, because a company wouldn't want to have a company increase its IP value during a purchase? What an imbecile.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
That is very odd. One would think if NLST really wanted more examination they would have requested such 2 weeks ago and prevent this info from making it into the public domain about the new patent. I wonder if a new recent development has made them delay the release. Maybe a JEDEC deal is being negotiated or even someone is trying to buy NLST. The next couple months should be very interesting.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Application number: 13/559476 Flash-DRAM Hybrid Memory Module
Perhaps someone more knowledgeable about the patent application process can take a look at the Image File Wrapper and clarify what's going on here.
The claims were approved and the patent was scheduled to be approved as stated in the following letter under the Image File Wrapper tab:
08-27-2014 ISSUE.NTF Issue Notification
Now it shows Netlist requested continued examination.
he just making excuses for why it won't happen tomorrow...
i believe it is called being a clueless bagholder???
You're a clown, you know nothing
These patents are submitted months ago, now Netlist is changing its mind? Ok
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Interesting development here. Looks like the patent issue date is delayed due to a "request for continued examination" by Netlist themselves. The patent application was previously approved and an issue date of 9/16/14 was even sent out on a 8/27/14 letter. The only reason I can think of for Netlist to request for continued examination would be to make the patent even more bullet proof to avoid re-examination requests being granted.
"I believe "
well did you believe in Santa Claus? Easter bunny? and of things that go bump in the night?
