Trend Micro Triumphs Over Intellectual Ventures In Patent Suit

Dallas-based security software developer Trend Micro is cheering the invalidation of two patents by a judge on Wednesday, in a ruling on a patent infringement case that had been filed against the firm by Intellectual Ventures. Trend Micro said that Judge Leonard Stark for the U.S. District Court of Delaware invalidated two Intellectual Ventures patents that have been asserted against Trend Micro since 2010. Intellectual Ventures had sought $150M in the patent suit. Trend Micro said it has been represented by Yar R. Chaikovsky and D. Stuart Bartow of Paul Hastings LLP, David L. Larson and Christopher D. Bright of McDermott Will & Emery LLP, and Karen Jacobs and Michael Flynn of Morris Nichols Arsht & Tunnell LLP in the long running case.
