BELLEVUE, Wash., June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ossia, maker of the revolutionary Cota™ wireless power technology, today announced that the Company has filed two Post Grant Review (PGR) petitions with the United States Patent Office (USPTO) against the core patent owned by Energous Corporation claiming 'pocket forming' technology.
The two PGR petitions challenge the patentability of certain patent claims contained in U.S. Patent No. 9,124,125 Wireless Power Transmission With Selective Range. The first petition challenges the patentability of certain claims because the patent specification appears legally insufficient to describe the alleged invention to "a person of ordinary skill in the art" to make and use the claimed invention that delivers wireless power with a selective range without additional invention or undue experimentation. The second petition challenges the patentability of certain claims because of the existence of technology that was previously described in the public domain prior to the filing of the patent.
The Ossia PGR filings are in compliance with the guidelines of the USPTO's PGR process that was created in 2013 by Congress with the full support and approval of the Obama Administration. The PGR process is designed to warrant, support and enhance the integrity of the entire U.S. patent process and to improve the quality of U.S. patents and innovation.
The USPTO website provides additional details about the PGR purpose and process:
"As a demonstrated leader and innovator in the field of remote wireless power, Ossia applauds the USPTO for the PGR process as a means for truly innovative companies to defend their intellectual property while improving the overall quality of the patent process," said Hatem Zeine, Ossia's Chief Technology Officer and inventor of Ossia's Cota Technology. "Ossia has been investing in and patenting remote wireless power technology since 2007 with seven granted U.S. patents to date and multiple pending patents worldwide."
Ossia is represented in this matter by Robert Greene Sterne of the patent law specialty firm of Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox PLLC of Washington DC.
