General Patent Corporation (GPC), a leading patent licensing and patent enforcement firm, announced today on behalf of its client, Renhcol, Inc. - a wholly-owned subsidiary of Betbrokers PLC (AIM: BETB) - that a settlement has been reached with Sports Memorandum, Inc. of Brentwood, Tenn. in a patent infringement lawsuit filed on behalf of Renhcol in 2008. Sports Memorandum becomes the tenth company to license the Renhcol patent.

Sports Memorandum agreed to settle the lawsuit and take a license under the Patent.

"We are pleased to have reached an amicable settlement with Sports Memorandum, and we look forward to settling with the remaining defendant," said Paul Lerner, General Patent's Sr. Vice President and General Counsel.
