United States Patent and Trademark Office Declares Interference Involving Advanced Voice Recognition Systems' Patent

A patent interference is a proceeding conducted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in instances where two or more parties claim patent rights to the same technology. The U.S. patent system awards patents to the first party who invented a particular technology. In an interference, the primary purpose of the USPTO is to determine which party invented the technology first, and to award the patent to that party.

On March 15, 2010, Advanced Voice Recognition Systems announced the declaration of interference by the USPTO. The USPTO declared the interference between Advanced Voice Recognition Systems' application serial number 09/351,542 as Senior Party and U.S. Patent #5,799,273 owned by Allvoice Developments, LTD as Junior Party. AVOI's patent was filed on November 13, 1995 approximately 10 months before the Allvoice filing. On January 13, 2011, Oblon Spivak of Alexandria Virginia, representing AVRS in the Interference proceedings between Allvoice Developments and AVRS, Inc., delivered oral arguments before a three judge panel of the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences (BPAI). The Company hopes to receive a timely decision.

The Allvoice patent is the subject of a lawsuit that Allvoice filed against Microsoft in August 2009 in the East District Court of Texas in which Allvoice alleged infringement of Allvoices' patent. Microsoft filed invalidity contentions based in part on Advanced Voice Recognition Systems' patent and its product Digital Dictate.

Advanced Voice Recognition Systems' principal assets are the patents. The business strategy will be to attempt to interest other companies in entering into license agreements or other strategic relationships and to enforce and defend its patents through infringement and interference proceedings, as appropriate.
