Universal Secure Registry patent challenged as likely invalid

On October 16, 2017, Unified, represented by Erise IP, filed a petition for inter partes review (IPR) against U.S. Patent 8,577,813 owned and asserted by Universal Secure Registry LLC, an NPE. The '813 patent, directed to a device onto which a user may store information regarding multiple financial accounts, has been asserted in district court litigation against such companies as Apple and Visa.
