JERSEY CITY, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 07/25/13 -- Single Touch Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: SITO), a technology based mobile media solutions provider, announced today that on July 17 2013, the United States District Court, Northern District of California issued its patent claim construction ruling, or "Markman Order", in the ongoing patent infringement action between its subsidiary Single Touch Interactive, Inc. and Zoove Corporation.
A Markman Order in a patent infringement case is where the presiding district court sets out the meaning of specific patent claim language that is disputed and present in the patents in suit. This court interpretation is then applied during the action in the determinations of infringement and validity. The Markman Order can be a significant factor in the progress and outcome of patent infringement litigation.
The recently issued Markman Order is consistent with Single Touch's position in the litigation and is favorable.
Anthony Macaluso, Founder and Chairman of the Board of Single Touch stated, "We are pleased with the Court's Markman Order and we are confident in our position concerning Zoove's infringement of the patent claims at issue in this case. While the outcome of any litigation cannot be predicted, we believe the Court's Markman Order is another significant step towards the successful resolution of this litigation."
On February 21, 2012, Single Touch Interactive filed a complaint against Zoove Corporation in the United States District Court, Northern District of California. The complaint alleges patent infringement, in which Single Touch seeks preliminary and permanent injunctive relief as well as damages resulting from Zoove's infringement of U.S. Patent No. 7,813,716 and U.S. Patent No. 8,041,341.
