Portland, Maine (PRWEB) February 19, 2009
Identity Cops Inc. announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued a Notice of Allowance for ID Cops patent application relating to identity theft detection and/or prevention systems. Specifically, a bot which locates identity thieves and engages them in a natural language trade of information.
The patent application, U.S. Application Serial No. 11/532,039: "System and Methods for an Identity Theft Protection Bot," relates back to an earlier filing prosecution, dated May 24, 2000 for an overall Identity Theft Protection and Reversal System.
Identity Cops President & CEO, Rebecca Weinstein stated: "This is very exciting news. We truly have the cutting edge software for the detection and prevention of identity theft. With all those out there claiming to have the "best," we can now say that in fact our technology, the first of its kind in the world, is also the definitive tool."
A Notice of Allowance generally completes the substantive examination of a patent application. Following a Notice of Allowance, the normal process which results in final issuance of a United States patent involves several administrative steps that are typically completed in due course following issuance of this notice.
