DESTINY MEDIA TECHNOLOGIES has received a 'Notice of Allowance' for DESTINY's "Digital Media Distribution Method and System" patent application from the UNITED STATES Patent & Trademark Office.
DESTINY CEO STEVE VESTERGAARD commented, "We first developed MPE in early 1999 and presented it at the CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW that year. In 2000, we were invited by the music industry to bring the technology to the Secure Digital Music Initiative. We have been providing secure media distribution technologies longer than any existing provider of pre-release distribution services, so we appreciate the formal recognition of the early priority of our intellectual property. When granted, this patent will have a foreign priority date of MARCH 3, 2000."
"We expect a formal patent grant within approximately four months of the issuance of this 'Notice of Allowance,' continued VESTERGAARD. "We are pleased we will be able to provide solid global intellectual property protection to our MPE customers around the world. We are currently expanding into new markets including CANADA, EUROPE, ASIA, LATIN AMERICA, AUSTRALIA and NEW ZEALAND."
