Petition asks the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) to invalidate all 18 claims asserted in U.S. Patent No. 9,700,642

BREAKING NEWS: 

Larson Electronics, Eden Park Illumination, Inc, and Far UV Technologies have been joined by Ushio America, Inc to crush the Far-UV patent troll witches preventing companies from saving lives with Far-UV light in one of the world’s worst pandemics!

PETITION FOR INTER PARTES REVIEW OF UNITED STATES PATENT NO. 9,700,642 PURSUANT TO 35 U.S.C. §§ 311-319, 37 C.F.R. § 42

Feb. 4, 2022 https://lnkd.in/d4ckiGsQ

The petition asks the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) to invalidate all 18 claims asserted in U.S. Patent No. 9,700,642.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions! This means that it is not enough to simply mean to do well, one must take action to do well. A good intention is meaningless unless it is followed by a good action!

The US courts are being clogged with legal cases while people are dying over unjust IP claims that are preventing the manufacturing of Far-UV light at scale. This wickedness will not prevail!

DING DONG!

Look up patent trolls, justice is coming down on you to squash this!

Disputed Patent Claims:

[1pre] A process for destroying a DNA or RNA of a microorganism on a substance or surface comprising the steps of:

[1A] generating photons of at least one wavelength corresponding to a peak absorption wavelength of DNA or RNA, the at least one wavelength being at least one of 222 nm and 282 nm;

[1B] directing the photons to the substance or surface to be disinfected, whereby the photons are selected to destroy a plurality of chemical bonds within the DNA or RNA of the microorganisms; and

[1C] wherein the substance or surface to be disinfected is human or animal skin.

[2] The process of claim 1 further comprising the step of providing an [sic] new ultra violet source for generating the photons.

[3] The process of claim 1 wherein the directing step is performed by reflecting the photons to a desired surface.

[4] The process of claim 1 wherein the step of directing the photons further comprises the step of providing 540 kJ/mole of photon energy to the substance or surface to be disinfected.

[5] The process of claim 1 wherein the step of directing the photons further comprises directing the photons to provide a radiant dose energy of 40 mJ/cm2 to the substance or surface to be disinfected.

[6] The process of claim 1 wherein the step of directing the photons further comprises directing the photons to provide a radiant dose energy of 60 mJ/cm2 to the substance or surface to be disinfected.

[7] The process of claim 1 wherein the step of directing the photons further comprises providing a radiant dose energy of 10 mJ/cm2 to the substance or surface to be disinfected.

[8] The process of claim 1 further comprising the step of selecting a source for generating the photons, the source for generating the photons selected to produce an irradiance of approximately 100 mw/cm2 or less.

[9] The process of claim 1 wherein the step of directing the photons further comprises exposing the substance or surface to be disinfected to the generated photons for less than 0.1 second [sic].

[10] The process of claim 1 further comprising the step of selecting a source for generating the photons, wherein the source for generating photons is a hand held lamp, and wherein the step of directing the photons further comprises the step of waving the hand held lamp over the surface or substance to be disinfected, exposing the surface or substance to the generated photons for approximately 0.1 second or less.

[GROUND 2] Claims 12-18 are rendered obvious by BrownSkrobot in view of Clauss

[12pre] A process for destroying a DNA or RNA of a microorganism on a substance or surface comprising the steps of:

[12A] generating photons of at least two single line wavelengths corresponding to a peak absorption wavelength of DNA or RNA, the at least two single line wavelengths being at least two of 222 nm, 254 nm and 282 nm; and

[12B] directing the photons to the substance or surface to be disinfected, whereby the photons are selected to destroy a plurality of chemical bonds within the DNA or RNA of the microorganisms.

[13] The process of claim 12 wherein the directing step is performed by reflecting the photons to a desired surface.

[14] The process of claim 12 wherein the step of directing the photons further comprises the step of providing 540 kJ/mole of photon energy to the substance or surface to be disinfected.

[15] The process of claim 12 wherein the step of directing the photons further comprises directing the photons to provide a radiant dose energy of 40 mJ/cm2 to the substance or surface to be disinfected.

[16] The process of claim 12 wherein the step of directing the photons further comprises directing the photons to provide a radiant dose energy of 60 mJ/cm2 to the substance or surface to be disinfected.

[17] The process of claim 12 wherein the step of directing the photons further comprises providing a radiant dose energy of 10 mJ/cm2 to the substance or surface to be disinfected.

[18] The process of claim 12 further comprising the step of selecting a source for generating the photons, the source for generating the photons selected to produce an irradiance of approximately 100 mw/cm2 or less.
