Apple Inc. v. Sightsound Technologies, LLC, Related Case Nos. CMB2013-00023 and CMB2013-00020 (PTAB Oct. 7, 2014) [Papers 101 and 105, respectively].
Apple succeeded in having the PTAB hold that certain claims in patents relating to a "system and associated method for the electronic sales and distribution of digital audio or video signals" are unpatentable. The PTAB concluded that certain claims would have been obvious based on existing publications by non-parties, pursuant to 35 USC 103(a). However, Apple did not succeed in establishing that the claims were anticipated under 35 USC 102(a).
