A Patent Suit Against Google Chrome Has Been Revived

A Patent Suit Against Google Chrome Has Been RevivedNow here’s something bit out of the blue.

As it turns out, back in 2013, Google was sued by Alfonso Cioffi and three other co-inventors, who claimed that all versions of Google Chrome as well as Google Nexus series and Chromebook laptop PCs infringed their anti-malware patents (which were issued in 2012, “system and method for protecting a computer system from malicious software” (U.S. Patent Nos. RE43,529, RE,43103, RE43,500, and RE43,528)).

While the case got thrown out in December (mostly because Alfonso Cioffi and Allen Frank Rozman agreed that it will be impossible to win on the court’s interpretation of the patents), the things has since changed, as it seems as the case was recently revived by the Federal Circuit, which means that Google will have to go back to court and continue fighting these claims.

Yay, patents.
