EIP Post has successfully defended four Inter Partes Review (IPR) petitions filed against its client, Good Technology Software, Inc (Good).
The petitions were filed by VMware, Inc. against four granted patents owned by Good Technology. The EIP Post team argued successfully that VMware’s relationship with AirWatch LLC should preclude institution based on a statutory bar. The Patent Trial and Appeal (PTAB) of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) agreed and denied institution of each petitions citing privity of interest in each instance.
The four IPRs at issue were: IPR2014-01324 against Good’s U.S. Patent No. 7,702,322; IPR2015-0027 against Good’s U.S. Patent No. 7,970,386; IPR2015-00030 against Good’s U.S. Patent No. 6,151,606; and IPR2015-00031 against Good’s U.S. Patent No. 8,012,219.
