Court Requests Further Briefing on Summary Judgment(November 15, 2011)
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/11 -- Augme Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: AUGT) ("Augme") ("the Company"), a technology and services leader in interactive media marketing that offers the only patented and innovative end-to-end mobile marketing platform, today announced that a decision issued on November 14, 2011 by the Hon. Colleen McMahon, District Judge for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, granting in part and denying in part Defendants AOL's and Tacoda's motion for summary judgment of non-infringement.
Augme had asserted that AOL/Tacoda had infringed its patented targeted advertising technology on two distinct grounds. The Court held that Augme could not prevail on one of the asserted grounds under the Court's claim construction ruling. The Court withheld ruling on the other ground and requested that Augme provide further briefing to establish that the Data Agent combined with Data Tag employed in Defendants' advertising network operates in essentially the same manner as claimed within the patents asserted by Augme. If the Court agrees with Augme's position, the case will proceed to trial.
