The Value of Published User Interface Videos for Intellectual Property Litigation
Published videos of systems portraying sequences of user interactions can become compelling evidence as prior art supporting invalidity contentions for patents in intellectual property cases. A video illustrating how a system works shows details that may not be revealed in textual descriptions, can be easier for lay people to understand compared to text, and often removes obfuscation. The beauty of a good interaction video is that it is easy to see exactly what a user is doing, and exactly how the interface responds. Thus videos make it far easier for a juror to understand the prior art being presented and whether it is, in fact, good evidence of invalidity.
