dismissed the patent infringement
lawsuit filed against MOBOTIX
Chief U.S. District Judge Fred Biery dismissed the patent infringement lawsuit filed by San Antonio, Texas-based e-Watch Inc. against MOBOTIX Corp.
The judgement was entered shortly after the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) had determined, upon MOBOTIX Corp’s request, that one of four patents asserted in the patent infringement lawsuit is not patentable. More inter partes review proceedings requested by MOBOTIX Corp. challenging e-Watch Inc.'s patents are pending at the USPTO. Decisions in these proceedings are expected in the months ahead.
"We are very pleased to have won this patent lawsuit by dismissal of all of e-Watch Inc.'s claims. For more than 15 years, we have been a successful pioneer in the IP video surveillance market and have shaped ground-breaking innovations in this industry. We’ll continue to take all available legal actions to defend our company against patent lawsuits," says Heidi Barnum, Head of Internal Operations at MOBOTIX Corp.
"We are looking forward to the Patent Office’s decisions in the remaining review proceedings. Although the decisions will have no relevance to this lawsuit any more, pursuing these inter partes reviews until a final decision has been reached reflects our commitment in the legal dispute with e-Watch Inc.," Heidi Barnum remarks.
