15:06 EDTGOOG, SAP, CAJGoogle, Canon, SAP among members of new cooperative patent-licensing group
Canon (CAJ), Google (GOOG), SAP (SAP), Asana, Dropbox and Newegg announced the formation of the License on Transfer, or LOT, Network, a cooperative patent-licensing agreement that the companies say will "cut down on patent troll litigation and the growing practice of patent privateering." The LOT agreement is a new kind of royalty-free cross-license meant to address these growing systemic problems. Member companies receive a license when the patents are transferred out of the LOT group. That means that companies retain their right to enforce a patent so long as they retain ownership of it. However, as soon as it is sold, a license to the other members becomes effective, protecting them from attacks by the troll to which the patent was sold. The agreement includes several other provisions that preserve a patent portfolio’s value, including carve-outs for certain M&A transactions and change of control, the group stated.

08:07 EDTGOOGUSPTO Examiner reconfirms patentability of Netlist's LRDIMM patent claims
Netlist (NLST) announced that the Examiner in the consolidated reexamination of U.S. Pat. No. 7,619,912 issued an Answer maintaining the patentability of 92 claims related to LRDIMM. The reexaminations were brought in the United States Patent and Trademark Office by Google (GOOG), Inphi Corporation, and SMART Modular Technologies. The 92 patentable claims are generally directed to the fundamental concept of rank multiplication which is integral to the design of the LRDIMM. The Examiner issued the Answer on January 14, 2015, in response to voluminous appeal briefs filed by Google, Inphi, and SMART Modular. The Examiner considered arguments from all parties and ultimately maintained his conclusions as to the patentability of these claims, while maintaining the rejection of 11 other claims. The parties will now have the opportunity to file rebuttal briefs before the reexamination proceeds to the Patent Trial and Appeals Board for oral arguments, likely later this year or early next. The '912 Patent is also the subject of litigation between Netlist and Google in the Northern District of California and Netlist and Inphi in the Central District of California. Both sets of litigation have been stayed pending the outcome of this and other reexamination proceedings.
