Dynamic Drinkware Wins Latest Round of Patent Battle against National Graphics

In a major win for Dynamic Drinkware, LLC (“Dynamic”), a three judge panel convened by the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s (“USPTO”) Patent Trial and Appeal Board ruled in favor of Dynamic’s challenge to National Graphics U.S. Patent No. 6,424,467 (the “‘467 patent”) entitled High Definition Lenticular Lens. Dynamic challenged the ‘467 patent using the relatively new Inter Partes Review procedure at the USPTO on the grounds that certain of the claims were anticipated and others were obvious over several prior art patents.

The ‘467 patent was directed to a thin lenticular lens typically used in magazines and comic book covers to provide 3D and motion effects. With its elimination, Dynamic believes that its ability to use thin lens technology will allow the company to expand into new areas of promotional products. “We are pleased with the Patent Trial and Appeal Board’s ruling today” said Dynamic’s President, Barry Johnson. “We hope to now be able offer more of this type of product to our clients.”

“This is a another significant victory for Dynamic”, said Pat Bergin, a shareholder at Davis & Kuelthau, s.c., who along with Matt McClean and Joe Heino, handled the IPR. “We were confident that National Graphics’ patent was invalid, and are pleased that Dynamic can now better compete and grow its business.”

Under the America Invents Act (AIA), IPR is a mechanism to challenge the validity of claims in issued U.S. Patents. The first step in this process is the filing of a formal petition with the USPTO to request a review of the patent at issue. An IPR is only instituted upon if there is a reasonable likelihood that at least one of the challenged claims is invalid. According to USPTO statistics, only about only about 22% of IPRs result in a finding that all claims are unpatentable.

Dynamic Drinkware Takes Another Huge Step Forward in Federal Court Litigation

Dynamic Drinkware, LLC (“Dynamic”) took a huge step forward in its pending federal court litigation against National Graphics, Inc. Judge William C. Griesbach of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin issued a decision and order granting Dynamic’s motion for summary judgment that neither Dynamic nor its co-defendants infringed U.S. Patent Nos. 5,488,451, 5,617,178 and 5,847,808 relating to methods for creating lenticular images. More than a year ago, the court granted Dynamic’s motion for summary judgment that none of the defendants infringed any of the claims of U.S. Patent No. 6,490,092.

With respect to the remaining patents at issue, the court denied both parties’ motions with respect to U.S. Patent No. 6,635,196 (the ‘196 patent). The court also denied both parties’ motions with respect to the validity of U.S. Patent Nos. 7,136,185 and 7,239,420 relating to a process for improving the quality of lenticular imaging, which means those issues will proceed to trial. “We are absolutely confident that facts presented at trial will clearly demonstrate that Dynamic’s proprietary process for molding lenticular cups does not infringe the ‘196 patent and that the ‘196 patent is invalid” according to Barry Johnson, Dynamic Drinkware’s CEO. “The facts are equally clear regarding the patents related to the process for improving the quality lenticular imaging”, said Johnson.

The court’s decision has absolutely no effect on Dynamic’s current business operations. Dynamic has secured the appropriate rights to produce molded lenticular products and will continue to produce the highest quality molded lenticular products for its customers.
