On June 2, the Commission affirmed Judge Dee Lord’s Initial Determination (see prior post) that the two remaining patents in the 963 Investigation (Certain Activity Tracking Devices, Systems, and Components Thereof) were directed to unpatentable subject matter. As discussed in our prior post, Judge Lord had previously found the other patents asserted in this investigation invalid, and the Commission had affirmed that determination on April 4. All patents asserted in this investigation have now been finally determined to be invalid under Section 101 by the Commission.
