EDISON, N.J., Oct. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (OTC PINK: SFOR), earlier this week, the Supreme Court of the United States denied StrikeForce’s petition for a writ of certiorari in StrikeForce Tech., Inc. v. SecureAuth Corp (19-103). Thus, the claims asserted against SecureAuth in the Central District of California, case no. 2:17-cv-04314-JAK-SK, remain invalid under 35 U.S.C. § 101. StrikeForce’s three patents contain a total of 108 claims, 43 claims were deemed invalid, however, 65 claims are still valid. StrikeForce is currently considering its options in the New Jersey cases against Duo and Centrify.
Despite the Supreme Court’s decision, StrikeForce’s ProtectID® products still retain patent protection and StrikeForce intends to further expand those protections with new patents in the coming months. In the meantime, StrikeForce continues to monitor the federal courts because there are several cases, including Berkheimer v. HP, currently pending in the Supreme Court, that could potentially change the legal landscape for challenging patents under § 101. Additionally, U.S. Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Chris Coons (D-DE), along with several other senators have released a bipartisan, bicameral draft bill that could reform § 101 of the Patent Act.
“StrikeForce continues to feel very optimistic about its IP strategy, its revenue generating opportunities and its commitment to increase shareholder value”, says Mark L. Kay, CEO of StrikeForce.
