MMRGlobal Investigates Possible Infringement of Company's Patents and Intellectual Property

MMRGlobal Investigates Possible Infringement of Company's Patents and 
Intellectual Property 
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 --  MMRGlobal, Inc.
(OTCQB: MMRF) ("MMR") today announced that it has been brought to the
Company's attention that Governments, both state and federal, in
Australia, through the National E-Health Transition Authority
(NEHTA), appear to be infringing on patents (including Australian
patent numbers 2006202057 and 2008202401) and other Intellectual
Property (collectively, the "MMRIP") issued to MyMedicalRecords.com,
Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MMRGlobal. NEHTA has reportedly
spent an estimated one billion Australian dollars on a Personal
Health Records program which is the subject of the potential
infringement and which appears to broadly incorporate numerous
portions of the MMR IP.  
As part of the Company's effort to protect its patents, on January
31, 2013, MyMedicalRecords, Inc. announced the filing of a complaint
in the United States 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. 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/.  
MMRGlobal has an extensive healthcare IT patent portfolio, which
includes seven U.S. patents: 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.
