Jury Finds No Infringement by Google, Invalidates Personalized User Model Patents

In the longstanding patent and contract action between Personalized User Model and Google, a jury returned a verdict last week. The verdict form shows that the jury found no literal infringement by any Google product of any asserted claim and that the jury found both anticipation and obviousness for each asserted claim. In addition, the jury sided with Google on breach of contract claims, finding that the statute of limitations for the claim was tolled, that Google had acquired the right to assert the breach of contract claim, that Google had proven the breach of contract claim, and that the California Labor Code did not exempt the breach of contract.

Personalized User Model, L.L. P. v. Google, Inc., C.A. No. 09-525-LPS (D. Del. Mar. 20, 2014).
