Network-1 Technologies said pre-market Wednesday that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued U.S. Patent No. 9,558,190 (“System and Method for Taking Action with Respect to an Electronic Media Work”).
The company noted that the claims in the newly-issued patent are generally directed towards systems of content identification and performing actions following therefrom.
The newly issued patent arises from a patent application contained in the patent portfolio acquired by Network-1 from Professor Ingemar Cox in 2013. Since the acquisition of the portfolio, Network-1 has filed 18 additional patent applications, 12 of which have been issued, bringing the total portfolio of granted patents to 17. The company says six applications relating to the original specification are still pending and Network-1 anticipates further issuances of additional claims for this portfolio.
