NEW YORK, June 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — PeerStream, Inc. (“PeerStream,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) (OTCQB: PEER), a communications software innovator developing enhanced security and privacy solutions for video, voice, and text applications and data transmission, today announced that yesterday the Company filed an appeal in Federal Circuit Court of the recent unfavorable ruling by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (“PTAB”) of the United States Patent and Trademark Office that rejected the validity of U.S. Patent Nos. 5,822,523 and 6,226,686.  These two patents were cited in PeerStream’s infringement lawsuit against Riot Games, Inc. and Valve Corporation. The Company has engaged the law firm Armond Wilson LLP, an expert in patent litigation, to pursue the appeal. 

“We are disappointed with the PTAB’s decision and continue to believe that the patents previously awarded to PeerStream are valid, and that previous rulings and licensing agreements accurately reflect the value of their contribution to technology innovation. The two patents in question, Nos. 5,822,523 and 6,226,686, were previously challenged and ultimately upheld, and we believe that on appeal they will continue to be upheld,” said Jason Katz, founder and Chairman of PeerStream.

These two patents have a history of successfully holding up to scrutiny and yielding licensing revenue.  They were first challenged during litigation in 2010, when a reexamination proceeding was instituted against them. This action resulted in both patents being reaffirmed as valid patents and numerous additional claims were added to the patents as well. These patents were then licensed to Microsoft, Sony, and Activision. 

The current litigation was initiated on December 16, 2016, when Paltalk Holdings, Inc. (“Paltalk”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Riot Games, Inc. and Valve Corporation for infringement of U.S. Patent Nos. 5,822,523 and 6,226,686 with respect to their online games League of Legends and Defense of the Ancients 2. On November 2, 2017, Riot Games, Inc. filed a total of four (two per patent held by Paltalk) petitions for inter partes review (“IPR”), which is a trial proceeding conducted by the PTAB, seeking to have the Paltalk patents declared invalid. On May 15, 2018, the IPR was instituted, and on February 13, 2019, the PTAB held a hearing on the matter. A determination was made by the Board as to the validity of the patents on May 14, 2019.

I believe with the recent victory of cancelling approximately 99% of the issued and outstanding shares, and the long drawn out legal hurdles that entailed, lays the precedent and shows the extent management will go to both protect and increase shareholder value both short term and long term.”
