(May 12, 2016, 12:17 PM EDT) -- ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Seven claims of a patent that discloses a system that provides a personalized messaging advertisement service by using information stored in a smart card were erroneously rejected as anticipated, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board ruled May 11 (Ex parte Seung Hwan Kim, Appeal No. 2013-009202, PTAB).

(Decision available. Document #16-160516-016Z.)

In the same ruling, however, the PTAB affirmed the examiner’s rejection of 21 other claims of U.S. patent Application No. 12/866,105.
