BlackBerry Gets NXP Patent Claims Nixed in AIA Review

September 25, 2014 – In The News

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s patent trial board recently held that several claims in two patents owned by Dutch semiconductor maker NXP BV were invalid, finding that petitioner BlackBerry Corp. has shown the claims were either obvious or anticipated in its America Invents Act challenge. The decisions come roughly five months after a Florida jury found that BlackBerry hadn’t infringed several of NXP’s patents related to circuitry used in wireless communications, including the ‘420 patent.

BlackBerry is calling this a "sweeping victory."

BlackBerry Corp is represented by Robert Mattson and W. Todd Baker.
