Patent Trial and Appeal Board Dismisses Second Blueprint RF Petition to Invalidate Nomadix Captive Portal Patent

AGOURA HILLS, CA--(Marketwired - May 3, 2016) - The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) today denied a petition for inter partes review filed by Hospitality Core Services LLC, d/b/a Blueprint RF (Blueprint RF), that challenged the validity of Nomadix's U.S. Patent No. 8,156,246 (the "'246 patent"). The '246 patent protects key technology for redirecting user computers to captive portals.

The PTAB reviewed the materials supplied by Blueprint RF and denied the petition as to all patent claims and dismissed the petition in its entirety. Upon review, the PTAB found that Blueprint RF failed to demonstrate a reasonable likelihood that the challenged claims 1-17 of the '246 patent are unpatentable.

"This result is once again consistent with prior challenges to Nomadix's patents in court cases and other Patent Office proceedings," explains Fred Reeder, chief commercial and operating officer of Nomadix. "We are pleased with the PTAB's decision, which continues to validate our view of the value of our intellectual property."

Last week, the PTAB also denied Blueprint RF's petition for inter partes review of Nomadix's U.S. Patent 6,636,894.
