Vitek IP Announces the Availability of Audio Messaging Patent Portfolio

Audio Messaging Patent Portfolio (SOLD)

Portland, OR, September 4, 2019

Vitek IP, LLC announced that they are the exclusive representative to sell the Audio Messaging Patent Portfolio.

The Audio Messaging patent portfolio contains 3 issued U.S. patents and 1 pending U.S. application. The patent owners are prolific inventors that have developed dozens of patent portfolios over the last two decades, many of which have been acquired by Global 100 corporations. The Audio Messaging portfolio is another carefully curated offering from them, applicable to numerous voice messaging applications on mobile phones, social media, visual voicemail, and online chat services.

The patent portfolio discloses features being implemented by major market players in the messaging space. The claims provide methods for recording audio on a phone and associating the audio with UI objects which include photographs, icons, emojis, or images to enable intuitive ways to navigate large numbers of messages. The push-to-talk messaging solution offers a more intimate and nuanced alternative to text messages. Voice messages and push-to-talk messages have experienced significant adoption throughout Asia and South America and are projected to see a considerable increase in use throughout the U.S. and Europe. In particular, use of voice messaging in the U.S. has grown markedly as a safe, hands-free option for texting in cars.

The patents are directed to associating a recorded audio message with an object, which can then be retrieved when the object is accessed. The benefit is that a user interface can present the objects according to any available properties, allowing audio messages to be ordered in a more intuitive manner and intermixed with other media. Vitek has developed confidential evidence of use charts documenting the implementation of the patents by major telecom, mobile phone, and social media providers.

The Audio Messaging patent portfolio is being offered to a limited number of potential buyers. Offers for the patents will be reviewed as they are received, and the patent owner intends to finalize a transaction in 2019.
