YANGAROO has been granted a U.S. patent for its "Content Distribution System and Method" covering method of distributing digital content, such as music and advertising, to selected individuals over the Internet, in which the uploading content provider selects the individuals that are entitled to access the content and sets release conditions, such as a time and date. Once the identities of the selected individuals have been verified at login, they are provided with access to the uploaded content if those release conditions are met.
The patent, which applies to YANGAROO's Digital Media Distribution System (DMDS), will be in effect until 2026. YANGAROO has a Canadian patent of the same title.
"This grant of our second U.S. patent underscores YANGAROO's status as the founding inventor in its sector and adds substantial value to the company," said President and CEO JOHN HEAVEN. "Our focus on leading through innovation continues to bring the best and most advanced solutions available to our customers. As a result of our program of actively protecting our technology, both the U.S. and Canadian patent offices have recognized our inventions as patents. We will continue to be vigilant in protecting these valuable intellectual property rights."
