On February 12, 2021, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed a U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California decision in the patent infringement matter of Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. v. DropBox, Inc., et. al., in which the Federal Circuit found that “all asserted claims, drawn to technology for synchronizing data across multiple devices are either invalid under 35 U.S.C. § 112, paragraph 2, or not infringed.”
The Federal Circuit did not consider the question of patent eligibility because of its rulings of invalidity and non-infringement.
