Canon專利官司敗訴,輸咗比專利神棍

啲專利神棍成日用啲專利周圍告人真係好討厭,大家點睇尼單野
Canon lost trail in patent infringement cause (sensor technology)

Company Intellectual Ventures accused Canon of patent infringement. Canon lost. Two image sensor patents are concerned: US6,221,686 “Method of making a semiconductor image sensor” and US6,023,081 “Semiconductor image sensor.”
Delaware Intellectual Property Litigation published a document with the motivations (see pages 11-19).


By Memorandum Opinion entered by The Honorable Sue L. Robinson in Intellectual Ventures I, LLC, et al. v. Canon Inc., et al., Civil Action No. 11-792-SLR (D.Del., May 18, 2015), the Court granted plaintiff’s alternative motion for a new trial regarding infringement of U.S. Patent Numbers 6,121,960 (“the ‘960 patent”) and 5,754,348 (“the ‘348 patent”) after concluding that defense counsel in his closing argument improperly played the role of expert witness by inferring from factual testimony that the accused devices did not meet the claim limitations arguments.  The court found such argument to be contrary to a pre-trial agreement that defendant would not present any evidence of non-infringement, including evidence of a lack of a subjective intent to infringe, particularly given that the Court previously barred certain testimony from plaintiff’s witnesses on the topic during the trial.

告Canon間公司係排第一的Patent Troll
1. Intellectual Ventures

U.S. patents and patent applications estimated by PatentFreedom: Well ... this is tricky for Intellectual Ventures. The company has so many subsidiaries that it's difficult to pinpoint the exact number of U.S. patents it has. PatentFreedom estimates 10,000 to 15,000.Meanwhile, Robin Feldman, a professor of law at UC Hastings, wrote a paper estimating it has 30,000 to 60,000 patents.

What we know about the NPE:Intellectual Ventures is the mother of all alleged patent trolls. It was the subject of an entire episode of This American Life.
The company was formed in 2000 by two former Microsoft employees and is shrouded in secrecy, according to a paper by Feldman.


For its part, Intellectual Ventures says it has acquired 70,000 patents and patent applications during its existence.


As for accusations about being a patent troll, the company says, "We can't control how other people characterize us, but we are no different than any other company that is protecting its IP assets."

師兄睇乜呢?

The court found such argument to be contrary to a pre-trial agreement that defendant would not present any evidence of non-infringement

呢D係官司之中雙方D協議 (Canon唔會係果庭度提出證據話Canon無侵權)... 並唔係話Canon同間專利神棍簽過D乜商業合同
