VirnetX Posts Denial of All RPX's Petitions for Patent Review

June 11, 2014

VirnetX Holding Corp. reported that on June 5, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) denied all seven petitions for inter partes review filed by RPX.

According to a company release, these petitions sought review of certain claims of VirnetX's U.S. Patent Nos. 6,502,135, 7,418,504, 7,490,151 and 7,921,211. The USPTO found that Apple is an unlisted real party-in interest in all the petitions filed by RPX and the Petitions were not filed within the time limit imposed by the applicable statute. The USPTO thereby declined to institute inter partes reviews of the challenged patents.

VirnetX Holding Corp. is an Internet security software and technology company.
