The original United States patents owned by Licensor were Patent No. 5,018,767 (granted in May, 1991) and 5,193,853 (granted in March,1993)
In 1999, a U.S. Court ruled that certain claims of U.S. Patent 5,193,853 were invalid because the Court determined there were two prior art European patents. The Licensor's later allowed this patent to lapse. The Court further ruled that certain claims of U.S. Patent 5,018,767 were also invalid due to the existence of this prior art. It should be noted that the prior art patents were later reviewed by the European Patent Office when they were cited by the Licensors in a counterpart EPO patent application. The Technical Board of Appeals of the EPO ruled that the Licensor's technology was patentable over the two prior art patents cited in the U.S. case.
