Unified’s IPR against IPNav / Clouding IP Instituted Against All Claims

On March 21, Unified's IPR against Clouding IP's Patent #6738799 was instituted against all challenged claims.  Despite Clouding IP's attempt to stop the IPR, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) rejected Clouding IP's arguments that Unified's members were real-parties-in-interest.
The PTAB reached this conclusion after Clouding IP took extensive discovery in district court on Unified's business model and membership relationship.  Unified is the first member organization to be granted IPR and is proud to be protecting Cloud Storage technologies from invalid patents.  A copy of the opinion can be found here:
