Axis Granted Review of Arecont Multi-Imager: 'More Likely Than Not' 'Unpatentable'

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Jan 09, 2018

In 2016, Arecont publicly threatened Axis with infringing on their multi-imager patent.

In 2017, Axis responded by filing a challenge in US court for Arecont's patent.

Now, the USPTO has seen merit in Axis' claim, granting their request for a post grant review, which is done on the basis it is "more likely than not" that at least one claim of a patent is actually unpatentable.

In this update, we examine the current status of the case, timeline, steps to a final resolution, and how losing this patent could affect Arecont.
