Silver State patent challenged as likely invalid

On June 7, 2017, Unified filed a petition for inter partes review (IPR) against U.S. Patent 7,650,234, a patent from Michael Obradovich's GPS portfolio which is currently owned and asserted by Silver State Intellectual Technologies Inc., a well-known NPE. The '234 patent, directed to a "technique for effective navigation based on user preferences,"  has previously been asserted against Google, Apple, Garmin, and TomTom.
