Worlds Inc

History

Founded in 1994, Worlds Inc. invented and patented technology to solve problems associated with large-scale 3D multi-user environments, known as virtual worlds.

Worlds secured an early priority date by filing a provisional application with the USPTO in Nov, 1995. Within a year, Worlds filed a non-provisional patent application, claiming the priority date of their 1995 provisional application.

Worlds has pursued additional claims associated with their invention through a series of continuing patent applications, amassing a substantial patent portfolio:

Their patent portfolio remains in force until Nov, 2016 (20 years from the filing date of their first non-provisional patent application).

December 6th 2016

Worlds Inc. (OTC QB:WDDD) is a leading intellectual property developer and licensee of patents related to 3D online virtual worlds. The Company has a portfolio of 9 US patents (6,219,045; 7,181,690; 7,493,558; 7,945,856; 8,082,501; 8,145,998; 8,161,385 8,407,592& 8,640,028) for multi-server technology in 3D applications, notably Virtual Worlds. The earliest of these patents issued on an application filed November 12, 1996. A provisional patent application, serial number 60/020,296, was filed on November 13, 1995.

These patents are related to each other and disclose and claim systems and methods for enabling users to interact in a virtual space. Worlds Inc. filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Activision Blizzard, Inc., Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. and Activision Publishing, Inc. in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts on March 30, 2012.

Activision's World of Warcraft and Call of Duty video games have been identified in the complaint as infringing on Worlds' patents. Max L Tribble, lead counsel of Susman Godfrey L.L.P, will be lead counsel for Worlds in the suit.

The Markman hearing for the patent infringement suit by Worlds Inc. against Activision Blizzard, Inc., Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. and Activision Publishing, Inc. (Activision Blizzard et al) (Nasdaq: ATVI), was held October 3, 2014 to address various aspects of the infringement suit claims and how the words in the 11 disputed 'constructions' in the claims should be construed for jury consideration. On June 26, 2015 Judge Denise Casper of the United District Court for the District of Massachusetts ruled in favor of certain Worlds key definitions and interpretations governing the construction claims. Activision Blizzard the defendant in this action became “time-barred” to file an action to challenge the Patents using the only “other” venue that has the authority to disqualify the patents, The United States Patent Trial and Appeal Board.


December 6th 2016: 
                                                                                                          
Worlds current Federal Trial is on mutual consent hold pending the disposition of the validation or denial action of the PTAB. The Company's principle goal will be to continue to grow its IP portfolio, while protecting and monetizing it through patent infringement litigation. In addition, Worlds Inc. intends to be active in the creation and acquisition of related digital media technologies and patents that complement their current patent portfolio and that broaden the features, versatility and reach of the technology to allow for its utilization in the broadest possible way.
