SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 10, 2012 /CNW/ - Advanced Voice Recognition
Systems, Inc. ("AVRS") (OTCBB: AVOI) is pleased to provide a corporate
update, including the recent decision in the AllVoice v. Microsoft
Interference Proceeding with AllVoice
AVRS specializes in interface and application solutions for speech
recognition technology. Our primary assets are our patents. We are
involved in an Interference proceeding with AllVoice Developments US,
LLC related to AllVoice Patent 5,799,273 (the "273 Patent"). An
Interference is a proceeding conducted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark
Office ("USPTO") when two or more parties claim patent rights to the
same technology. The proceeding is conducted before the Board of
Patent Appeals and Interferences ("BPAI"). We are the Senior Party
and AllVoice is the Junior Party. The Interference was declared on
March 9, 2010, and we expect a decision soon from the BPAI.
AllVoice Litigation with Microsoft
AllVoice sued Microsoft for patent infringement in federal court in the
state of Washington (Case No. C10-2102 RAJ). Microsoft asked the Court
to construe the disputed claim terms of the AllVoice 273 Patent, and a
decision was made on December 21, 2011. The written opinion decides
Microsoft's motion for a partial summary judgment of the invalidity of
many of the claims involved in our Interference proceeding with
AllVoice that is currently before the BPAI. A full copy of the opinion
that grants in part, and denies in part, the motion for summary
judgment, can be found at www.pacer.gov. Because of the relevance of this opinion to the Interference
proceeding, we submitted a copy of the December 21, 2011 District Court
opinion to the BPAI.
Patented Technology Update
On December 27, 2011, we filed an Amendment in Continuation patent
application (13/112,137) filed on May 20, 2011 in the United States
Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO"). The amendment and other filings
related to this patent application can be found at www.uspto.gov.
The previously reported Continuation In Part patent application
(13/115,105) filed on May 24, 2011 in the USPTO has been dispatched
from pre-exam but has not yet been assigned to an examiner.
