BELLEVUE, Wash., Sept. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Voip-Pal.com Inc. (“Voip-Pal”, “Company”) (OTCQB: VPLM) announces the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) has ruled in favor of Voip-Pal in its long legal battle against Apple. In a decision announced on September 25, 2020, the Court upheld the December 21, 2018 ruling by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) denying Apple’s request for sanctions. The CAFC also affirmed the PTAB’s ruling that Voip-Pal’s ’815 and ’005 patents are non-obvious. Moreover, the Court rejected Apple’s bid to invalidate certain claims that had not been declared ineligible in a parallel district court case.
