Magseis Fairfield Defeats Seabed Geosolutions’ Patent Challenge


Magseis Fairfield Defeats Seabed Geosolutions’ Challenge of Seismic Node Patent

Magseis Fairfield is pleased to announce that on November 26, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (“PTAB”) of the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office issued a Final Written Decision rejecting Seabed Geosolutions’ attack on the validity of U.S. Patent RE45,268 (the ’268 Patent).

Magseis Fairfield has accused Seabed’s MANTA system of infringing the ’268 Patent in a lawsuit pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas.  Seabed sought to attack and invalidate the ’268 Patent through an Inter Partes Review before the PTAB that resulted in the Final Written Decision rejecting all of Seabed’s invalidity arguments.

Magseis Fairfield looks forward to continuing its patent infringement lawsuit against Seabed and recovering all available remedies for Seabed’s past and ongoing infringement of the ’268 Patent, including lost profits, a reasonable royalty, and an injunction against the MANTA system.
