(PRWEB) August 22, 2013
Omaha-based VKGS LLC (Video King) is pleased to announce that on August 19, 2013, that the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan (File No. 1:12-CV-219) granted Video King’s renewed motion for summary judgment against Planet Bingo, LLC on grounds that the following Planet Bingo patents (6,398,646 and 6,656,045) are invalid under 35 U.S.C. § 101 for failure to recite patentable subject matter.
“We are pleased that Judge Bell has granted our motion for summary judgment in this case, and has agreed with our key argument since the start of this case that these patents were nothing more than abstract ideas attached to a computer performing basic computer processes of transacting, storing, and retrieving.
“Video King takes all legal matters intended to impugn its corporate integrity very seriously and will continue to vigorously defend against any claims which seek to wrongfully tarnish our corporate image or which attempt to extort Video King,” said Rusty Morin, Video King’s vice president and CFO.
“Video King has been vindicated by the outcome”, said Morin.
Video King is one of the worldwide leaders in the manufacturing of electronic bingo equipment, bingo games, and bingo hall management systems, with its products installed in thousands of bingo halls around the world.
