Mar 08, 2013, 13:30 ET from ICAP Patent Brokerage

MENLO PARK, Calif., March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for auction a web services IP portfolio for search engine address bar technology from M4siz Limited. This lot will be included in the 18th ICAP Ocean Tomo IP Auction on March 20, 2013, at the Rosewood Sand Hill Hotel in Menlo Park, California.


"We are excited to be offering this address bar searching tool to our global base of buyers. This IP package includes a straightforward and seamless searching procedure that produces fewer, but more targeted results, thus saving the user time and effort," says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.

Key Characteristics & Benefits
The portfolio for sale benefits from a very early priority date and covers searching from the address bar, including predictive completion or URL prompts via computers, handheld devices, local network or Internet-based routines.

The objective of this invention is to provide a more seamless and faster searching procedure, requiring fewer user steps than with other methods. In addition, the process of searching is streamlined by limiting the results to exclude the majority of extraneous material. Such parsing of data provides for greater precision through tailoring of address bar searches to minimize click through to purchase or data location, thus improving efficiency of process.

This improved search technique encapsulates any program or computer with searching functionality; from conventional Internet searching systems to search on an intranet where, for example, the search engine could be the cross network search program and the database could be the list of files.

The IP package available is highly relevant to companies providing search engines, browsers, database management, data mining, cloud services or search software. Such searching procedures may also be used by software programs incorporating search routines on local computers, the Internet, extranet or intranet networks.
