TORONTO, June 23 /CNW/ - 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (TSX:ONE) today
announced that it has received the First Office Action, in respect of the
Re-examination of its Patent, from the United States Patent and Trademark
Office ("USPTO"). The First Office Action is non-final, providing a summary of
the USPTO's findings based on their initial review of information provided
solely by Citrix. The Inter Partes Re-examination process does not allow for
input from the patent holder prior to the issuance of the First Office Action.
Now that it has been issued we are entitled to, and will, respond with our
"We were encouraged by the fact that, without input from us, the USPTO
did not accept many of the arguments presented by Citrix. We look forward to
the opportunity of responding and believe the USPTO will support our views
once they have had a chance to review our submission," said Andrew Cheung,
President and CEO of 01 Communique. "We have been aware of the references in
the Office Action as they were identified to us by Citrix during the discovery
process of our court case. We believe the arguments supporting our position
and refuting the arguments submitted by Citrix are strong. We have always
been, and remain, confident in the validity of our patent and the merits of
our case against Citrix."
We filed a Notice of Concurrent Proceedings with the USPTO, which
notifies them our court proceedings were stayed (deferred) pending completion
of this re-examination. It is the policy of the USPTO to expedite
re-examinations when court proceedings are pending.
