XIAOMI'S PETITION TO INVALIDATE OX PATENT DEFEATED AT CHINESE PRB
The China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) confirmed an Ox Mobile Technologies, LLC (OMT) patent to be valid over a petition filed by Xiaomi Mobile Software Co., Ltd. (Xiaomi). Xiaomi challenged Patent No. ZL200610152450.8 (the 450 patent) on numerous grounds including indefiniteness, novelty over three different references, and inventiveness over several combinations of references.
Ox sued Xiaomi in Munich, Germany, for infringement of the ‘450 patent’s counterpart, European patent EP2068582, which litigation is still pending. OMT is pleased that the CNIPA has confirmed the strength of its patent portfolio.
