STILLWATER, Okla., November 14, 2006 —Pardalis, Inc. announced today that a second patent has been issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office regarding a significant continuation patent application to the company’s key intellectual property, the Common Point Authoring system.
“There is a question commonly asked by information producers who participate in complex supply chains,” said CEO and co-inventor Steve Holcombe. “That question is Who owns my data? The every increasing usage of unique identification as applied to both products and people is raising the level of consciousness of information producers about information privacy and confidentiality. When the question is not answered to their satisfaction the result is missing or incomplete supply chain information.”
“Pardalis has developed innovative methods which lead to protecting the data ownership rights of each information producer when they share valuable information with another supply chain participant,” said Holcombe. “Data ownership matters because it encourages and promotes the increased availability of information to entire supply chains.”
The issued patent is entitled the 'Common Point Authoring System for Tracking and Authenticating Objects in a Distribution Chain'. The issuance comes thirty-seven months after the filing of the continuation patent application in the United States. Foreign filings relevant to the newly issued patent are being pursued under the Patent Cooperation Treaty in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Europe, Hong Kong, India, Japan, and Mexico.
