Boston, MA. June 10, 2013 – OnePIN Inc. announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office granted a patent for the company’s content sharing platform.
The patent, number 8,326,361, protects a unique permission-based system that allows mobile subscribers to share any type of content such as ring tones, pictures, videos, audio files, music, and other types of user generated content.
Content sharing via mobile devices has become the new norm in both mature and emerging markets. Smartphones are already a mainstay in mature markets, and penetration in emerging markets continues to grow each quarter. In emerging markets, the mobile device is the only connection to the internet that many people have. As a result, mobile operators continue to look for platform solutions that enable this trend.
“People around the globe all share a common need: To connect with one another and share experiences. Mobile devices provide the fastest and easiest way to do this. As devices and networks allow, people are continuing to share their lives in bigger and bolder ways with more multi-media rich content. The solutions that we bring to market enable friends, colleagues, and family members to continue to feel connected via real world experiences. We’re happy that these commercial solutions are viewed as novel and unique by the USPTO, and we’re dedicated to bring future innovations to mobile users worldwide,” noted Christopher DeGrace, Vice President of Platform Solutions and Global Alliances.
