Patents are good and appeal should be answered very soon ,,, so what will happen?
Love it ....Patent and Trademark Office mailed a notice that it will issue a certificate confirming that all of the claims of U.S. Patent No. 6,314,420 remain valid and unchanged. This is the second time the USPTO has confirmed the validity of the `420 Patent.
The USPTO has also previously confirmed the validity of U.S. Patent No. 6,775,664, the other patent asserted in litigation with Google. At this time, there are no other pending reexaminations for the patents asserted in the litigation.
So when Googles appeals goes down in flames then what? How does Vringo collect it's money?
But up to how many times can this be required by the USPTO?
Can Google just keep requesting this be done again…5, 6, 7 times?
I mean really.. why was it even allowed a second time? Does the USPTO make mistakes often..They are not a court. They are an organization.
This also may trigger ZTE to throw in the towel and get a reduced price per hand set.
VRNG has filed in other countries and did and end run around ZTE in the China "court" system.
Pressure is building in favor for VRNG. Remember, the German , Manheim courts have decided in favor for the patent holder, and the EU nations generally follow the German court decisions... still courts are slow, and China is notorious for not supporting other countrie's business' pats and paying royalties, and yet....
should vringo even accept a reduced amount? google is down to the its last appeal at the cafc. what are the chances now that it will go against vringo? can the cafc still rule non-infringement of the recently validated patents?
