Recitation of “Module” Renders Claims Indefinite in Rain Computing v. Samsung
March 24, 2021
- Bradford F. Fritz
This presentation will discuss the recent Federal Circuit decision in Rain Computing, Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., in which the court found that the term “user identification module” is a means-plus-function term that invokes 35 U.S.C. § 112 ¶ 6. Further, the court ruled that the term renders the claims indefinite because the claims and the specification lack sufficient structure for performing the claimed function.
