» GPS/Cellular U.S. Patent #B1 5043736
 

» Trademarks for L-Biz®, LSP®, Destinator(TM), L-Commerce
 

» L-Biz® Technology
 

» Destinator(TM) Technology
 

It is worthwhile to note that U.S. Patent #B1 5043736 is a broad-based wireless location patent covering the apparatus and method of transmitting position information from satellite navigational signals (such as GPS) over cellular systems to a base unit and displaying the location of that equipped object. Paradigm's rights cover all fields of use for the patented system (except for certain criminal justice applications). As described in a February 21, 2001 press release, the company is seeking to enforce all of its intellectual property rights relating to the patent. Paradigm has retained a high-profile attorney, David Boies of Boies, Schiller, & Flexner LLP, to vigorously enforce the company's rights under the patent. If the companies infringing on its patent rights have to pay a licensing fee to Paradigm, this legal action could result in a huge influx of longterm revenues for the company.
