This morning the Federal Circuit released a nonprecedential opinion affirming a judgment of the Northern District of Texas of noninfringement of two patents. Here is the introduction to the opinion.
Infernal Technology, LLC v. Activision Blizzard Inc. (Nonprecedential)
Appellants Infernal Technology, LLC and Terminal Reality, Inc. (collectively, Infernal) sued Defendant-Appellee Activision Blizzard Inc. (Activision) for infringement of two patents related to rendering light and shadow in computer graphics. After the district court issued a claim construction order adopting the parties’ agreed-upon construction of the term “observer data,” the district court granted Activision’s summary-judgment motion of noninfringement. Because the district court properly analyzed the limitation “said observer data” in view of its construction of “observer data” to find that Infernal failed to raise a genuine issue of material fact as to infringement, we affirm.
