Axon/Digital Ally Patent Claim Updates
This week, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued U.S. Patent No. 9,712,730 to Digital Ally, whose claim described both body-worn devices with separate cameras and recorders and the capability to insert markers into the videos being recorded. Digital Ally’s claim, which refers to technology we introduced in our Axon Pro cameras back in 2009, was originally filed in 2012, which is three years after the filing of Axon’s pending 2009 patent application covering these same innovations, among others. As such, Axon has a number of strong legal options available going forward.
