MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) (the "Company" or "MMR") today announced that while Superstorm Sandy pounded the East Coast, the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued another health information technology patent to MMR. U.S. Patent No. 8,301,466, entitled "Method and System for Providing Online Records," was issued in the wake of the hurricane and one year in advance of the government's Meaningful Use requirement that patients be provided access to their personal health information online through a Personal Health Record or other form of patient portal by 2014. The Company also announced that this week it begins the process of court-ordered proceedings against Surgery Center Management, LLC ("SCM") under a $30 million Settlement and Patent License Agreement with SCM (the "SCM License"), of which the Company claims a minimum of $10 million is now due. Ted Ward of the law firm Liner Grode Stein Yankelevitz Sunshine Regenstreif & Taylor LLP ("Liner Law"), who represents the Company on patent licensing and infringement matters and on the SCM case, is also in the process of contacting hospitals and other healthcare professionals regarding the enforcement of the Company's intellectual property rights and opportunities to license the technology. "The Company has a written and executed agreement with SCM that is fully integrated and provides that SCM is to pay the Company $30 million, $5 million per year. We fully expect the Company to prevail in this matter. Further, because SCM has breached the terms of the SCM License Agreement, the Company will also protect its rights in Federal Court by pursuing claims for patent infringement against SCM," said Mr. Ward.
