SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ICAP Patent Brokerage, the global leader in intellectual property brokerage and a division of ICAP plc, the world's premier interdealer broker, and ICAP Ocean Tomo Auctions, are offering for sale technology related to on-demand transmission of contact information at its upcoming Summit on Patent Monetization and Live IP Auction November 16th & 17th in San Francisco. The Lot is owned by Jeffrey Cousins and includes one US patent.
The featured technology, listed as Lot 131 in the online auction catalog, can be viewed at www.icappatentbrokerage.com/forsale. This lot discloses an apparatus and a process for wirelessly sending directional signals containing personal information such as an email address. The apparatus disclosed is a transponder device that contains a controller and a memory unit. Essentially this device is designed to transmit and receive email addresses from one user to another in a defined area. The user transmitting the email address uses the directional antenna to direct the device at another person who is also holding a transponder. The sender then presses the designated button and sends this wireless transmission to the second user who then receives an indication that the transmission has been received. The technology provides an innovative solution for those wishing to make an on-demand transmission of contact information.
Forward citing companies include Sandisk Corporation, Cypress Semiconductors, Roaming Messenger Inc., and Hewlett-Packard Co.
Dean Becker, ICAP Patent Brokerage and ICAP Ocean Tomo Auctions CEO, commented, "Our Fall 2011 Auction will be our biggest yet, featuring more than 140 lots. Technology, like that disclosed by this lot, represents some of the best innovation in the industry. We are very excited to be able to offer this to the worldwide market."
