With Technology Company 
ALEXANDRIA, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/08/13 --  Marathon Patent
Group, Inc. (OTCBB: MARA) ("Marathon"), an intellectual property
services and patent licensing company, today announced that its
wholly owned subsidiary CyberFone Systems, LLC has entered into a
license and settlement agreement with a well-known technology
company. This agreement, the 33rd for the patent portfolio, resolves
patent litigation that is still pending against other technology
companies in the United States District Court for the District of
Delaware. The patents cover claims that provide the right to practice
specific transactional data processing, telecommunications, network
and database inventions, including financial transactions.  
"On April 23rd, Marathon announced the acquisition of CyberFone
Systems; 15 days later we have executed our first settlement
agreement on behalf of its patent portfolio," stated Doug Croxall,
Chief Executive Officer of Marathon Patent Group. "Strategically
acquiring assets that are already revenue producing will permit
Marathon to post revenues immediately. It is an important step toward
achieving our stated goals of generating consistent revenues and
increased cash flows."  
The terms of the confidential settlement and license agreement
include a fully paid up license amount and other consideration. 
Ongoing enforcement of the CyberFone patents continues against named
defendants that include Federal Express, Mitsubishi, Toshiba,
Nintendo, ZTE, Alcatel-Lucent and UPS.
