On December 22, 2009 legal counsel in Washington, D.C. successfully filed and confirmed the utility patent documentation for the SportsRiskIndex® (Systems and Methods for Risk Management of Sports-Associated Businesses). This application referenced the original provisional application 61/139,809 filed on December 22, 2008 and, with successful prosecution, will extend intellectual property protection for an additional 19 years. The SportsRiskIndex® will now continue under Patent Pending status while awaiting release for prosecution from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office backlog queue that currently extends several years.

On December 22, 2009, we also successfully completed the initial international filing for the SportsRiskIndex® with the World Intellectual Property Organization (http://www.wipo.int).

“The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations. It is dedicated to developing a balanced and accessible international intellectual property (IP) system, which rewards creativity, stimulates innovation and contributes to economic development while safeguarding the public interest.WIPO was established by the WIPO Convention in 1967 with a mandate from its Member States to promote the protection of IP throughout the world through cooperation among states and in collaboration with other international organizations. Its headquarters are in Geneva, Switzerland. The Director General is Francis Gurry.” (text directly from WIPO website)

Our initial filing designated all 184 Member States (http://www.wipo.int/members/en/). In 18-30 months, we will revisit which national entry filings will be pursued. This process with WIPO initiated the necessary legal protocols and processes required to establish international protection beyond the bounds of all protections offered by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Washington, D.C.
