CHICAGO, June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for sale a comprehensive autograph authentication system from inventor Frederick D. Noyes. This IP package will be included in the upcoming sealed bid event taking place on September 26, 2013. Bids for this lot will be accepted starting September 24 through September 26.
"We are excited to offer this authentication software and service solution to our global base of buyers. This portfolio is highly relevant to celebrity and sports management firms as well as marketing and memorabilia companies wishing to prevent reputational damage and financial losses for their clients," says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.
Key Characteristics & Benefits
The market for autographed collectibles exceeds one billion dollars, and prices rise each year as collectors seek memorabilia signed by celebrities, sports personalities, and historical figures. This innovative set of authentication and verification tools combat the operation of forgery rings and the prevalent issue of fraudulent merchandise saturating the memorabilia and collectibles market.
The portfolio for sale includes a system for establishing the authenticity of a signature on a particular item wherein a celebrity meets directly with a representative of the verification system provider. Upon signing, the representative affixes a tamper-proof, alphanumeric label unique to the item that includes not only basic information associated with the item, but also several layers of security coding. Importantly, the celebrity signs an affidavit attesting to the signature and the corresponding identification information, which is retained in a secure facility and catalogued in a database accessible to celebrities, dealers, and buyers.
See this technical description of the autograph authentication and verification IP sales offering.
