NeoMedia's Core Mobile Marketing Linking Technology Gets EPO Nod for Protection in 10 More European Countries
NeoMedia Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: NEOM), an innovator in mobile marketing
services and patented PaperClick(R) technologies used in mobile marketing to
provide automatic links to Internet-based information, said today that the
European Patent Office (EPO) has allowed patents covering its core technology,
extending coverage to 10 European countries.
Chas W. Fritz, NeoMedia's founder and chairman, said a Notice of Allowance from
the EPO was based on proceedings conducted last month in The Hague. Recognition
by the EPO extends the patents for NeoMedia's core technology - the use of bar
codes and other unique identifiers to automatically link to content on the
Internet - to Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, the
Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom,
"This recognition and Notice of Allowance from the European Patent Office
further strengthens and broadens NeoMedia's already strong global patent
position," said Mr. Fritz.
Protecting NeoMedia's Core Technology
"Many advancements pioneered, engineered and implemented by NeoMedia are based
on this core technology," said Mr. Fritz. "Protecting what is rightfully ours
has been and remains vitally important to the company and to our ability to move
forward. Now, this validation of our claim and acknowledgment of our rights
provides even more protection for the company and our shareholders."
