The United States Patent and Trademark Office recently denied General Electric’s requests to re-examine TransData Inc.’s smart meter patents, thereby strengthening the latter’s current patent infringement lawsuits against CenterPoint Energy, Oklahoma Gas & Electric, and Oncor Electric, among others, Market Watch reported on March 3.
Sensus USA, Sensus Metering, Telensa Ltd., and M2M Technologies, and other companies currently contain licenses for TransData’s smart meter patent.
TransData Inc. president Trace Gleibs expressed his disappointment that General Electric has “refused to recognize the validity of our patents and accept liability for patent infringement despite the fact that all the final determinations issued by the Patent Office have been in Trans Data’s favor.”
