On May 18, 2017, Unified Patents requested Inter Partes Review of U.S. Patent No. 6,873,940 owned by Kamatani Cloud, LLC. Unified Patents requested the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (“PTAB”) to cancel all claims of the ‘940 Patent. Kamatani Cloud opposed, and the ‘940 Patent underwent full Inter Partes Review, including expert discovery and oral arguments at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. In a final written decision dated September 19, 2018, the PTAB rejected arguments presented by Unified Patents and upheld the validity of all claims of the ‘940 Patent.
Kamatani Cloud was represented by Michael E. Shanahan and Dmitry Kheyfits.
