Linius extends US patents coverage of IP, core invention
07 February 2017 by Peter Dinham
Melbourne-based ASX listed video technology developer Linius Technologies has secured additional US patents to further protect its intellectual property and reinforce its already existing core patent.
Linius (ASX: LNU) has been granted US Letters Patent Nos 9,516,392 and 9,544,657 for Method and System for Content Delivery.
Linius’ patented video virtualisation engine converts legacy video into interactive, virtual video.
The US patents are continuations of Linius’ core patent, which was granted in November 2014, and the company says they provide extra protection for the client-side and server-side functions of its core invention.
Linius chief executive Chris Richardson says continuation patents are unique to the US, and are for extending useful applications or claiming different embodiments of the original invention and, in this particular case, the patents extend the Linius core invention.
“A part of our strategy from day one has been to extend our intellectual property protection through the pursuit of additional patents, copyrights, and trademarks,” Richardson says.
“As we develop new applications for our technology we will continue to assess opportunities for additional patents.
“We see the issuance of these continuation patents as broadening our already strong IP protection, across all of our operating divisions.”
