Advanced Voice Recognition Systems, Inc. Provides Update Regarding Interference
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Advanced Voice Recognition Systems, Inc. (“AVRS”) (OTCBB: AVOI) provides a status update on the interference proceedings before the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences (the Board).
AVRS reports that, on April 27, 2012, a panel of the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences (“BPAI”) entered a judgment that all of the claims in Application No. 09/351,542 (i.e., the application that is involved in Interference No. 105,746 with U.S. Patent No. 5,799,273 owned by Allvoice Developments US, LLC) are unpatentable.
Initially, however, it should be noted that the Company’s four U.S Patents issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office are unaffected by the decision of the BPAI and that AVRS intends to continue its efforts to license and otherwise enforce those patents vigorously.
President and CEO of AVRS, Walter Geldenhuys, stated, “The BPAI chose to exclude all of our expert witness testimony when they made their decision. We have various options under consideration that we are evaluating and we intend to proceed accordingly.”
As reported in the November, 2011 Corporate update, the Company conducted internal patent evaluations comparing our technology to those products we believe may be utilizing our patented technology without the benefit of a licensing agreement. The Company’s patent attorney is close to concluding the review and evaluation. Upon conclusion we plan to proceed with efforts to monetize our patent portfolio.”
