Federal Circuit Affirms PTAB Ruling Upholding Finjan Patent as NPE Reports Jump in Revenue

September 21, 2018

Another Finjan Holdings, Inc. patent has survived a validity challenge. On September 19, the Federal Circuit upheld a March 2017 decision in an inter partes review (IPR) filed by Palo Alto Networks, finding that a malware detection patent held by the publicly traded NPE is not invalid as obvious. The decision affirmed the PTAB’s holding that the asserted combinations of prior art did not disclose a key claim limitation related to the processing of data received over a network. It comes shortly after Finjan, buoyed by recent settlements in its ongoing litigation campaign, reported $82.3M in revenue for the first half of 2018, an increase of more than 200% over the same period last year.
