Sue L. Robinson: Data-Capture Patents Construed


District judge Sue L. Robinson issued a claim construction decision on Tuesday addressing a variety of claims related to data-capture systems. In particular, the Court construed the following terms and phrases:

“Communication means for transmitting data between said server station and each of said plurality of client data collection terminals”
“Application programs”
“Said generated request identifying the terminal and a particular overlay module needed to continue the execution of the application program”
“Communication means for interconnecting said terminal and said server”
“First information portion”
“A communication system communicatively interconnecting said terminal and said server”
“Executable portions”
“A display screen occupying substantially an entire broad side of the processing module”
“Optical readers means for effecting the input of optical information”
“An indicia reader input system”
“A multitasking operating system”
The Court also declined to construe, as indefinite, the phrases “formatted in a first style” and “formatted in a second style different from said first style.”
