New York-based Network-1 Technologies, Inc. reported on Tuesday, October 27 that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued notice of intent to issue ex parte reexamination certificate of the company’s remote power patent, dismissing challenges regarding the device’s patentability.
The patent had been reexamined by the USPTO due to a request made by Sony Corp. of America to review certain parts of the patent awarded in April 2015. The USPTO then denied Sony’s petition for institution of a covered business method review and as well as the company’s request for a re-hearing of the decision denying institution.
This is the second reexamination certificate for the remote power patent; the first having been issued in 2014, when an unknown third party requested the patent’s review.
