Realtime Adaptive abandons patent after PTAB institutes IPR

On January 31, 2019, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) granted Realtime Adaptive Streaming, LLC’s (a Realtime Data affiliate and well-known NPE) request for adverse judgment and cancellation of all instituted claims in IPR2018-00883 filed by Unified. This request comes shortly after the PTAB’s decision to institute trial for U.S. Patent 8,934,535, directed to selecting an asymmetric compressor algorithm for compressing data, storing the compressed data, and decompressing the data. The ‘535 patent has been asserted in 26 district court cases, 6 of which were pending as of this decision.

Unified was represented by Lionel Lavenue at Finnegan in this proceeding. View all of Realtime's District Court litigation here. To read the decision, visit Unified’s PTAB Portal.
