Following Recent Victories in the US, Finjan Expands Its Anti-Malware Campaign in Germany

October 18, 2016

Finjan, Inc., a subsidiary of publicly traded Finjan Holdings, Inc., has filed a third patent infringement suit against Blue Coat Systems, this time in Germany. Finjan’s latest suit, filed on October 14 in the German District Court of Dusseldorf, asserts a European patent (EP 0 965 094) generally related to anti-malware technology–the same patent the NPE asserted in a July suit in Germany against ESET. This week’s filing follows a failed attempt by Blue Coat to overturn a jury’s $39.5M verdict against the company in another suit brought by Finjan in the US. It also comes less than a month after a California jury awarded Finjan $15M in damages in a trial against Sophos.
