U.S. judge cancels patents on eve of Trend Micro trial

A U.S. judge has invalidated two patents owned by Intellectual Ventures just weeks before its lawsuit against Japanese security software provider Trend Micro Inc over the same patents was set to go to trial. U.S. District Judge Leonard Stark in Delaware said on Wednesday the two patents were too abstract to deserve legal protection. The ruling likely means Intellectual Ventures' infringement trial with Trend Micro will not proceed.
