iLiv has been granted a US Patent!
This is huge achievement for a start-up, and everyone involved deserves a big round of applause. Special kudos to the four inventors: Karen Tucker, Jean Gagliardi, Sergei Rybakov and Andrew Culver, as well as to Stephan Georgiev and his team at our patent attorneys Smart & Biggar.
iLiv All-In is full of inventiveness. And there’s more to come.
Software patents have taken a credibility hit in recent years, with some really silly patents being granted. Remember the “One-click checkout” patent? And patent trolls — firms that don’t even try to market products but exist solely to extort money from those who do — are rightly condemned for bringing no value to society.
But we’re not in that game. We work hard every day to help our customers work better together on better and better processes. We invent to be of service. We think our patent is a pretty cool and valid thing.
Furthermore, and because of all the patent nonsense around recently, the USPTO (US Patent and Trademark Office) has not been feeling very generous. They’ve been stung, and have gotten parsimonious because of it. They raised the bar, and we leapt over it.
All the more reason for us to say: Check out iLiv All-In if you want to see how the future of work is being invented.
