The history of Meta and the enhanced Augmented Reality Headset of Meta 2 is not over yet, there is a new development that can affect its ultimate fate, an update in the patent infringement case against Meta or what still of the company remains in the hands of its new, undisclosed owner.
In a court filing filed by the court clerk (the court secretary) on January 29, stated: "It is hereby ordered that the defendant's answer [Meta Company] be made and the court clerk instructed in this action against the defendant The plaintiff's lawyer will provide the defendant with a copy of this Order of the Order no later than three days after the date. "
Previously, Next Reality reported that Meta had given the court the required new one by January 24 Legal representation needed to continue Genedics' patent infringement case. 19659 002] This date has passed, and it seems that the court has even given the owners of Meta's property a few more days to file a response. However, this did not happen, so the court has made progress with the next phase of the case.
At first sight, the new owners of Meta's assets seem to be losing the rights to the patent in question, but this is not the case so easily. According to Genedics' legal team, who talked with Next Reality about the case, at least one more step on their side must be taken to ensure a final victory in the case.
At least part of Genedics' efforts This would mean that a new application will be filed with the court, which may later lead to a "default judgment" against the owner of Meta's assets.
And while there is always the possibility of agreement or appeal for a future verdict, both It is difficult to speculate that the new owners of Meta's fortune are a mystery. Even the Genedics legal team has admitted to this letter that they have no idea who the new owners are, which would make any backroom negotiations difficult.
UPDATE: A Report from Variety points to the transfer of patent rights that the new owner of Meta's assets is a newly formed company called Meta View. However, the contract documents include a person named Mayer Gniwisch as the recipient of the assets. A quick web search reveals that Gniwisch is General Partner of Oliver Tree Ventures, an Israel-focused technology investment fund. Prior to the bankruptcy of the AR startup, the VC company listed Meta as one of its portfolio investments. So it looks like this buyer has an insider track all the time.
Whether the new owner decides to divide the company's assets for other purposes or to move the brand under new direction, the patent infringement case and its end result must be dealt with in the coming months.
