Files Invalidation Over Blatant Lack of Inventiveness; Vows to Stand With Customers Against RealD’s Unfair Threats

BEIJING, CHINA — (September 2, 2014) — MasterImage 3D, a worldwide leader in 3D display technologies for digital cinema, took action to challenge the validity of RealD’s utility model (UM) patent in China, filing an invalidation before the State Intellectual Property Office on August 22, 2014. MasterImage 3D specifically argues that RealD’s utility model patent blatantly lacks novelty over MasterImage 3D’s earlier filed patent applications and over RealD’s older patents disclosed several years prior in the United States.

MasterImage 3D concluded that RealD’s utility model patent filed in China is not valid and lacks inventiveness. This UM application was only successfully granted, because Chinese UM patents lack substantive examination.

MasterImage 3D asserted that it will stand with customers in all cases, as RealD has taken varying actions to threaten customers and competitors around the world. If RealD continues unsupported threats against MasterImage 3D customers, MasterImage 3D will take any action necessary to stop them. MasterImage 3D is also evaluating their own legal remedies to counter RealD’s misuse of the UM patent.
