It makes one a bit dizzy trying to keep up with the Patent Office in regards to VirnetX's patents.
Last week, I wrote about the reopening of the Cisco reexaminations of VirnetX's 504 and 211 patents. But meanwhile, the Director allowed Apple's examination of the same patents to continue on, citing no examiner error during the original prosecution.
Late last week however, VirnetX rechallenged the Director to reopen the prosecution for at least the same reasons it did for the Cisco case. If the Director will not reopen the reexamination, VirnetX pleads with the Director to at a minimum to enter VirnetX's expert testimony into the record.
So, in essence, these are petitions for reconsideration of the decisions regarding the original decisions. Yikes!
