Rembrandt Patent Innovations, LLC et al. v. Apple, Inc.

Docket No. 2016-2324

November 22, 2017


Brief summary: DC claim construction and finding of no infringement by Apple affirmed.

Summary: Rembrandt appealed DC grant of SJ of noninfringement by Apple’s “mobile products” (iPhone, iPad, and iTouch) of US 6,185,679 relating to “techniques for securely initializing, or ‘bootstrapping,’ a computer system.” The FC panel opinion explains that “Apple’s noninfringement arguments hinge on whether the claimed recovery step must be performed automatically without human interaction, as Apple argues” (and the DC agreed), “or whether there is not such a requirement, as Rembrandt argues.” The DC concluded the ‘679 specification “clearly limited” manual recovery “to instances when several attempts at automatic recovery have failed”, “Apple’s recovery process did not solve the same problem purported to be solved by the ‘678 patent”, and making “Apple’s recovery procedure…equivalent to automatic recovery…would vitiate the automatic limitation”. 382 more words
