of the Internet in the late 1990's inspired the creation of much
software technology. Many of the companies and individuals involved
believed that they were the first to solve some of the problems
related to creating and delivering services over a communications
network. Often they were NOT the first to see the opportunity
and create these electronic products and services. Many patents
were filed and granted by Internet developers, with neither the
applicant nor the USPTO being aware that the same technology had
been created before the Internet by the on-line services industry
(The Source, Prodigy, GEnie, CompuServe, Delphi, AOL).
in the on-line services industry, Nuvocom's associates have personal
knowledge of this early on-line technology; they are experienced
at locating and actually demonstrating it. Nuvocom also has extensive
experience with Internet technology and trends. This provides
a broad context in which to evaluate the similarities and differences
of modern developments and early technology.
