JLI is experienced with patent
litigation involving computer software, both from the point of view
of the patent holder, where the primary object is usually to establish
that the accused device is infringing, and from the point of view
of the manufacturer of an accused device, where the usual object
is to demonstrate that, in fact, the claims of the patent do not
read on to the accused device.
It can be particularly challenging to determine
whether the claims of a software patent read on to a particular
accused device - initially only the externally observable behavior
or some other factual evidence leads the patent holder to the suspicion
that the device might infringe.
JLI can work with a client's attorneys to
construct a claim lexicon and claim construction charts for each
patent in suit.
JLI specializes in all aspects of infringement analysis for software
patents or those patents which are implemented using microprocessors,
including, where appropriate, reverse engineering of existing products.
JLI can also assist in researching likely prior art that may anticipate
a given patent.
