Arterra is a company conceived of in 1996 by Daniel J. W. Neal and incorporated in 2003 to realize a vision for mobile devices and other mobile services that could be safely used by children and all those who love them. From his vision has grown a patent portfolio of thirty (30) issued U.S. patents with a number of pending applications directed to different aspects of this technology.
Kajeet products and services are protected by the following issued U.S. Patents:
7,881,697; 7,899,438; 7,945,238; 8,078,140; 8,285,249; 8,588,735; 8,594,619; 8,600,348; 8,611,885; 8,630,612; 8,634,801; 8,634,802; 8,634,803; 8,639,216; 8,644,796; 8,667,559; 8,706,079; 8,712,371; 8,725,109; 8,731,517; 8,755,768; 8,774,754; 8,774,755; 8,918,080; 8,929,857; 8,995,952; 9,125,057; 9,137,386; 9,137,389; and 9,237,433. Other patent applications and continuation-in-part applications are pending.
The Arterra patent portfolio includes four patent families directed to (1) policy control for mobile devices, (2) electronic wallets for managing pre-paid and plan-limited mobile devices, (3) selective access control for mobile devices, and (4) sponsored connectivity services for mobile devices. Within these families are numerous claims applicable to Mobile Device Management, Shared Data Plans, and Employer-Managed Mobile Devices.
The Arterra patent portfolio has been strategically and purposefully prosecuted to mitigate the risk of invalidity challenges. As a result of extensive pre-filing patent and non-patent prior art searches and prosecution citations, comprehensive Invention Disclosure Statements (IDS) have been progressively filed during prosecution of all Arterra patent applications. Eight different patent examiners have reviewed this portfolio; hence, existing validity opinion at the patent office is exceptionally diverse. As we learn of new prior art, it will be submitted on an IDS and reviewed by the patent office as part of our on-going prosecution efforts.
In addition, we have fully vetted the patent eligibility issue relative to our patents and are confident that the patents in the Arterra portfolio are not directed to abstract ideas as are some other software patents. Instead, the inventions in the Arterra patents are specific improvements in mobile device and mobile network communication technologies. They address a problem that did not exist until the proliferation of mobile devices in the work place, among families and children, or at schools. Solutions and products developed and commercialized by Arterra provide for safe and secure use of the latest mobile technology.
Commercialization and Licensing of Our Patents
Arterra is a successful and growing operating company that was started by three dads figuring out how mobile technology, kids, and parents work best. They had the foresight to protect their ideas through building a robust patent portfolio. Arterra is not a “patent troll.” Arterra , having raised over $100 million in venture capital, is a model of American invention, innovation, and commercial success delivering real solutions across the U.S. and beyond.
Arterra has allowed others to compete with it in certain market segments by licensing its patents and source code in return for commercially reasonable licensing fees.
Arterra provides valuable products and services to fulfill real market needs. Arterra has made a significant investment in developing its patent portfolio so as to avail itself of protection available to it under the law from those individuals and entities that are practicing the unique Arterra intellectual property without a license.
As a good corporate and commercial citizen, Arterra is actively licensing its patents and invites any person or company seeking to license the Arterra patent portfolio to contact Arterra directly at:
7901 Jones Branch Drive, Suite 350
McLean, VA 22102
By fax: 240-482-3578
By email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your feedback is welcome and encouraged. You agree, however, that (i) by submitting unsolicited ideas to Arterra, you automatically forfeit your right to any intellectual property rights in those ideas; and (ii) unsolicited ideas submitted to Arterra or any of its employees or representatives automatically become the property of Arterra.
