Finjan Receives Another Favorable Claim Construction Order, Now Against Bitdefender
EAST PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Finjan Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: FNJN), and its subsidiary Finjan, Inc. ("Finjan"), announced that the Honorable Judge Haywood S. Gilliam Jr. of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California (Case No. 17-cv-04790-HSG) adopted and ordered claim constructions on all four of Finjan’s patents asserted against Bitdefender, namely, U.S. Patent Nos. 6,804,780; 7,930,299; 8,141,154; and 8,677,494.
Specifically, the Court construed a total of ten claim terms: three in the ‘494 Patent, two in the ‘780 Patent, four in the ‘154 Patent, and one in the ‘299 Patent. Of the ten terms, the Court adopted seven of Finjan’s constructions. Rejecting one Bitdefender construction related to the ‘494 Patent, the Court construed the disputed term on its own by supplementing Finjan’s proposed “plain and ordinary meaning.” The Court also adopted two of Bitdefender’s constructions, although one related to the ‘494 Patent was originally proposed by Finjan in a separate unrelated matter, and the other term related to the ‘780 Patent was previously construed by Judge Freeman in Finjan’s litigation against Blue Coat Systems, Inc.
“This Court’s Claim Construction Order further affirms the scope of our asserted patents,” said Julie Mar-Spinola, Finjan’s CIPO. “We appreciate the Court recognizing throughout the Order that the majority of the claim terms have been previously construed and that Bitdefender did not present any new authority or offer a clear basis to revisit these prior constructions.”
The court dockets for the foregoing cases ae publicly available on the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) website, www.pacer.gov, which is operated by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.
