Trend or coincidence? The International Trade Commission (ITC) has affirmed summary determination rulings of patent invalidity in two, separate investigations: Certain Wireless Headsets, Inv. No. 337-TA-943 and Certain Automated Teller Machines and Point of Sale Devices and Associated Software Thereof, Inv. No. 337-TA-958. This follows the April 4, 2016 affirmance of ALJ Lord’s Section 101-based invalidity summary determination in Certain Activity Tracking Devices, Systems, and Components Thereof, Inv. No. 337-TA-963 [see our previous blog post].
