MyMedicalRecords Files Patent Infringement Complaint Against WebMD

MyMedicalRecords Files Patent Infringement Complaint Against WebMD 
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/12/13 --  MyMedicalRecords,
Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF)
(collectively, "MMR"), today announced the filing of a complaint for
patent infringement against WebMD Health Corp. and its wholly owned
subsidiary, WebMD Health Services Group, Inc. ("WebMD"). The
complaint alleges that WebMD is infringing on MMR's Personal Health
Records patents including 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 13-00979 (CAS/JCx), on
February 11, 2013, and will be available on the court's website
http://www.pacer.gov/.   
The complaint alleges that WebMD provides health information services
to consumers and healthcare providers, as well as employers and
health plans through both their private and public portals. The
public portal, such as the one accessible at www.webmd.com, also
allows consumers to review a variety of health and wellness
information. Starting in 2007, MyMedicalRecords began meeting with
WebMD. At that time, WebMD's private patient portal, called WebMD
Health Manager, allowed patients to enter certain health information
into an account and run a self-assessment. Since that time, WebMD has
changed WebMD Health Manager into an integrated, untethered and
consumer-controlled Personal Health Record (PHR), incorporating
features and functionality that are the subject of MMR's patents.  
With the assistance of the Liner firm, 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.  
MMR is a leading provider of Personal Health Records,
MyEsafeDepositBox storage solutions, and MMRPro document management
and imaging systems for healthcare professionals. The MMR Patent
Portfolio includes seven issued U.S. patents as well as additional
applications and continuation applications including nearly 400
claims. MMR also has been g
ranted 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. The patents involve inventions
pertaining to Personal Health Records, Patient Portals and other
Electronic Health Record systems. 
Additionally, MMR holds biotech patents which, among other things,
pertain to the manufacturing of compositions for B-cell vaccines used
in the fight against lymphoma, and also anti-CD20 antibodies. MMR's
biotech patent portfolio, which was acquired through its 2009 reverse
merger with San Diego-based biotech company Favrille, Inc., currently
includes three U.S. patents (U.S. Patent numbers 6,911,204, 8,114,404
and 8,133,486) four U.S. pending patent applications, and numerous
additional patents and patent applications globally, as well as other
IP which is the subject of 13 million dollars in licensing
agreements.

complaint against WebMD, contact Ted Ward at Liner Grode Stein
