A Federal Appeals Court invalidates a Patent that was used in Infringement cases against Apple and Google

Apple Inc, Oath Inc and Alphabet Inc's Google on Friday won a ruling from a federal appeals court invalidating claims in a 'pop up' computer notification patent they were accused of infringing.


The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said a patent owned by Interval Licensing LLC was invalid because it described the basic, abstract idea of "displaying a second set of data without interfering with a first set of data." For more on this, sign into Westlaw here.


Interval Licensing is run by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.


The patent in question may either be 6,034,652 or 6,788,314. Both patents carry the same title "Attention manager for occupying the peripheral attention of a person in the vicinity of a display device."
