Eolas Says Day Is Night, Loss Is A Win
from the who's-right? dept
Yesterday we had the story of Eolas apparently losing "round two" in their patent review battle. We noted, at the time, that the process is pretty complex, so it's still a bit early to celebrate. However, it's still a bit surprising today to see Eolas trying to spin yesterday's story as good news for them. They claim that the original finding has been "withdrawn" and the points made in this finding apply to completely different prior art that Eolas believes they'll effectively be able to explain away. Whether or not this is true, it's yet another reminder that this is far from over -- and since Microsoft is no longer allowed to argue for their side, Eolas has the ability to say whatever they want without a response.
