U.S. Patent Office Rules in Favor of Cra-Z-Art in Its Challenge of Capriola/Laser Pegs' Patent

RANDOLPH, N.J. --(Business Wire)--

The United States Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO") issued a final decision in Cra-Z-Art's favor concerning its challenge of Capriola Corp.'s U.S. Patent No. 7,731,558, which allegedly covered Capriola's Laser Pegs products. The Patent Office held that all of the claims of Capriola's '558 patent are unpatentable.

Cra-Z-Art was sued in Florida federal court by Capriola Corp and Laser Pegs Ventures, LLC, alleging that Cra-Z-Art's LITE BRIX® building systems infringed the '558 patent. In response, Cra-Z-Art challenged the patent at the USPTO under itsnew Inter Partes Review proceedings, which resulted in a stay of the lawsuit. The decision rendered by the Patent Office affirms Cra-Z-Art's continuous position all along that Capriola's '558 patent was illegitimately issued by the USPTO and that the lawsuit was completely without merit.
