ResQNet.com, Inc. v. Lansa, Inc. 533 F.Supp.2d 397 First Started on District Court and then was sent to the Court of Appeals. This case dealt with ResQNet bringing suit against Lansa for ther product called NewLook infringing one of their patents for screen recognition software for terminal emulation. There were 2 claims of 2 patents whent his was sent to the Court of Appeals, it was found that the Lanasa software did infringe one of the patents but not both. It did not infringe the ' patent as it only shared with it the use of a term User ID. However it did infringe by utilizing ResQNet claim ' that . Important to notice is that Lansa tried to get the patents invalidate under due to prior public publication in a instuction manual for the Flashpoint software, which details a method of GUI grabbing screens for emulation. However it was deterined that a user manual is not was not a public publication, as it is not accesible by everyone without buying the software and as a result could constitute prior art.
