The thing is, Mobilestats claims they dropped their patent infringement claim due to lack of financial resources. But is it also just as possible that they eventually figured their case wasn't strong enough to pursue it further and decided to cut their losses? Otherwise, it's hard to understand why they didn't show up in court to defend themselves against mindef's subsequent counterclaim? If the implication was that the patent would be revoked due to the no-show, that sounds like something you wouldn't want to miss if you strongly believed your patent was valid...
MobileStats dropped claims due to lack of financial resources
Dr. Mak and Dr. Ting decided to drop its claim on patent infringement after receiving the counter offer by MINDEF as they do not have the financial resources to carry on.
The High Court granted in chambers MobileStats' application to discontinue its suit and allowed Mindef's counterclaim to seek a court order to revoke MobileStats' patent.As MobileStats did not turn up in court for the hearing to defend their case, the High court granted MINDEF's counterclaim to seek a court order to revoke MobileStats' patent.
