YANGAROO’s Next U.S. Patent Application Published

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

New Patent Application Builds On YANGAROO’s U.S. Patent No. 7,529,712

Toronto, Canada -- YANGAROO Inc., (TSX-V: YOO, OTCBB: YOOIF) the industry's leading secure digital media distribution company, is pleased to announce that its continuation patent application no. 12/398,238 entitled "Content Distribution System and Method" has been published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office under publication no. US-2009-0171966-A1.

YANGAROO has already obtained U.S. and Canadian patents for its Content Distribution System and Method, including U.S. patent no. 7,529,712 that was issued May 5, 2009. A continuation patent application is a mechanism available under the U.S. patent system to pursue additional claims in a second patent application. YANGAROO’s continuation patent application no. 12/398,238 contains 29 claims and benefits from the same 2002 priority date as the original patent application.

In summary, the claims in the continuation patent application are directed to distributing digital music to registered recipients who request access to the server and who are included in a distribution list specifying which registered users can access the digital music. The system enables content providers to control which recipients are included in the distribution list for a particular digital music file and what release conditions can be set for that file.

"This application will confirm the breadth of our intellectual property rights," said John Heaven, President and CEO of YANGAROO. "Through our technology development programs we continue to bolster our position as the leading innovator in our sector and to add significant intellectual property assets to the company."


YANGAROO's patented Digital Media Distribution System (DMDS) is a leading secure B2B digital delivery solution for the music and advertising industries. DMDS is a web-based delivery system that pioneers secure digital file distribution by incorporating biometrics, high-value encryption and watermarking. DMDS replaces the physical distribution of audio and video content for music, music videos, and advertising to television, radio, media, retailers and other authorized recipients with more accountable, effective, and far less costly digital delivery of broadcast quality media via the Internet.

YANGAROO's DMDS has made over six million deliveries of over 21,000 songs from more than 600 record labels to destinations which include radio stations representing over 35 U.S. broadcast chains. U.S. record labels made over 2 million deliveries of songs via DMDS in 2008. DMDS is the only system that can digitally deliver music across the U.S., Canada and the U.K. YANGAROO has offices in Toronto, New York, Los Angeles, and London, U.K. YANGAROO trades on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX-V) under the symbol YOO and in the U.S. under OTCBB:YOOIF.
