Raytron Technology Corporation Invalidates Adverse Patent

14 October 2021

Sojuzpatent represented Raytron Technology Corporation, a Chinese high-tech leader in the sphere of optoelectronic systems and laser products, in a dispute relating to firearm scope business in Russia. Our attorneys developed the protection strategy for the client under which they filed an opposition against the impeding Russian invention patent No. 2730466 «Providing Enhanced Situational-Awareness Using Magnified Picture-In-Picture Within a Wide Field-Of-View Optical Image” (right holder – Yukon  Advanced Optics Worldwide). The patent relates to such products as firearm scopes, binoculars, telescopes, and thermal cameras.

In the proceedings, our attorneys used both traditional prior art evidence typical for such cases (patent documents and other publications) and new type of evidence, such as YouTube video, which was admitted by the Chamber for Patent Disputes. Having considered the parties’ arguments, the Chamber resolved to invalidate the patent in full.
