November 21, 2016 -- Voip-Pal.com, Inc. (“Voip-Pal,” the “Company”) (OTCQB:VPLM) is pleased to announce that on November 18, 2016 the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (“PTAB”) of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) denied on all grounds a petition for Inter Partes Review (“IPR”), IPR2016-01082, filed by Unified Patents Inc. against Voip-Pal’s Routing, Billing and Rating Patent (“RBR”), Patent No. 8,542,815 (“815”)


The PTAB ruled, “…upon consideration of the Petition and the Preliminary Response, we conclude that the information presented does not show a reasonable likelihood that Petitioner would prevail in establishing the unpatentability of any of claims 1, 2, 7, 27–29, 34, 54, 72–74, 92, 93, and 111 of the ’815 patent.”


“Accordingly, it is: ORDERED that the Petition is denied as to all challenged claims, and no trial is instituted.”

Voip-Pal CEO, Emil Malak, stated, “We are very pleased with the PTAB’s decision to deny institution of the IPR. This is very significant for our company and brings us one step closer to monetizing our patent portfolio.”
