MyMedicalRecords Files Patent Infringement Complaint Against Walgreens

MyMedicalRecords Files Patent Infringement Complaint Against Walgreens 
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 --  MyMedicalRecords,
Inc. ("MMR"), a wholly owned subsidiary of MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB:
MMRF), today announced the filing of a complaint for patent
infringement against Walgreen Co. The complaint alleges that
Walgreens is infringing on MMR's Personal Health Records patent,
specifically U.S. Patent No. 8,301,466, and as a result, MMR is
seeking monetary damages as well as a permanent injunction. As stated
in the complaint, Walgreens is the nation's largest drugstore chain
with fiscal 2012 sales of $72 billion, operating 8061 drugstores and
providing services to over 6 million customers. The complaint was
filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of
California, case number CV 13-00631, on January 29 and is available
on the court's website http://www.pacer.gov/.  
MMR is a leading provider of Personal Health Records (PHRs),
MyEsafeDepositBox storage solutions, and MMRPro document management
and imaging systems for healthcare professionals. MMR currently has
seven U.S. Health IT patents: U.S. Patent Nos. 8,301,466; 8,352,287;
8,352,288; 8,121,855; 8,117,646; 8,117,045; and 8,321,240. The MMR
Patent Portfolio includes nearly 400 claims as well as additional
applications and continuation applications. The patents involve
inventions pertaining to Personal Health Records, Patient Portals and
other Electronic Health Record systems. MMR also has been granted
patents and has other pending applications in countries of commercial
interest including Australia, Singapore, New Zealand, Mexico, Japan,
Canada, Hong Kong, South Korea, Israel, and European nations. 
Working with Liner Grode Stein Yankelevitz Sunshine Regenstreif &
Taylor LLP, MMR is pursuing efforts to monetize its patent portfolio
and other IP by investigating potential infringement of MMR's patents
by entities such as retail pharmacies, EHR and PHR vendors,
laboratory systems, hospitals, physicians, and other healthcare
professionals.  
On January 23, 2013, BioMedReports.com published an article regarding
the MMR Patents linking to a Research and Valuation report. The
report discusses how more than 5500 hospitals, 150 PHR vendors and 
750 EMR vendors as well as providers, payers and pharmacies are
potential licensees of the MMR Patent Portfolio. The Valuation covers
MMR's U.S. Patents and does not include its issued patents and
pending applications in twelve additional countries. Since the
publication of the report less than two weeks ago, MMR received
notice of Health IT patent approvals in Japan. To go directly to the
