Prince Lobel Scores a Federal Circuit Patent Law Win

May 30, 2019

James Foster of Prince Lobel’s Intellectual Property team scored a win last week in the Federal Circuit Court, when a unanimous three-judge panel overturned the U.S. District Court decision which invalidated patents asserted by our client, Uniloc.  The original District Court decision invalidated four Uniloc server management software patents on the grounds that they asserted nothing more than “abstract ideas,” but this recent appeals court decision reversed the lower court finding and held that two of the patents did, in fact, represent original software that allowed on-demand installation of specific applications.  For more about this story, read the Law360 article on the topic here.
