ART+COM Innovationpool GmbH v. Google Inc.

ART+COM Innovationpool GmbH v. Google Inc. No. 1-14-cv-00217 (Andrews, D.J.) (D. Del. Apr. 28, 2016) 

Patent(s):    

RE44,550 | Entitled, “Method and device for pictorial representation of space-related data” 

Disposition:               

Denial of Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment of Invalidity for ineligible subject matter under § 101.

Abstract Idea:

Yes

Something More:

Yes

Technology:              

Systems and methods for pictorial representation of space-related data.

Summary:                 

The court found the claims were directed to the abstract idea of “storing image data, then repeatedly requesting specific data, which is then stored and displayed.” But the claims added an inventive concept by permitting the “impression of continuous movement” through an iterative process of dividing the representation into sections of varying image resolutions.
