US Court of Appeals Has Upheld Debt Resolve's Patent, No. 6,330,551

    WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., August 6 /CNW/ - Debt Resolve, Inc. (AMEX:   DRV),
announced today that in the case of Cybersettle, Inc. vs. National Arbitration
Forum, Inc. (2007-1092), the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal
Circuit in a decision dated July 24, 2007, held that the asserted claims of US
Patent No. 6,330,551 ("551 Patent") for online dispute resolution cover the
submission of multiple rounds and offers that may be compared and tested at
any time and directed that National Arbitration Forum submit to further
proceedings in the District Court on the issue of its infringement. The Court
also found that other claims do not have a multiple bid requirement.

    This major patent infringement case, titled Cybersettle v. NAF, reaffirms
Debt Resolve's patent protection, since Debt Resolve and Cybersettle both have
rights under the same patent; Cybersettle for insurance; Debt Resolve for
settlement of consumer debt. NAF, which had earlier admitted the validity of
those patent claims, is a Minnesota-based company involved in alternative
dispute resolution, including settling disputes concerning consumer and
commercial debt. Debt Resolve believes that this decision will prevent NAF
from entering the Online Dispute Resolution business in the field of consumer

    CEO James Burchetta stated: "We were delighted, but not surprised, that
the Court reaffirmed the protection provided by Debt Resolve's patent and
intellectual property. We applaud and congratulate Cybersettle and await the
outcome of the hearing in the District Court on the issue of actual
infringement. This is a significant victory that clearly demonstrates the
power and breadth of our patents."

    Debt Resolve's suite of online collection tools is protected not only by
the 551 Patent but also by US Patents 6,954,741 and 6,850,918. The Company
intends to continue to vigorously defend its patent and intellectual property
rights, which have been granted in numerous countries worldwide, including the
