During the six months ended June30, 2013, Network-1 acquired thirteen (13)
patents as well as six (6) pending patent applications. Network-1 continues
to review potential patent acquisitions and strategic relationships with third
parties to monetize their patents.

"It was another strong quarter for Network-1," commented Corey M. Horowitz,
Chairman and CEO of Network-1. "Importantly, during this quarter we acquired
a patent portfolio from Mirror Worlds, LLC which has significant licensing
potential and at the same time continued to develop our content recognition
patent portfolio acquired during the first quarter. Combined with our ongoing
Remote Power Patent licensing initiatives, we are strongly positioned for
continued growth in our overall technology licensing activities," he added.

During the quarter, Network -1 initiated patent litigation against several
vendors of document system software and computer systems in the United States
District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division, for
infringement of U.S. Patent No. 6,006,227 (the ''227 Patent").

Named as defendants in the lawsuit are Apple, Inc., Microsoft, Inc.,
Hewlett-Packard Company, Lenovo Group Ltd., Lenovo, Inc., Dell, Inc., Best Buy
Co., Inc., Samsung Electronics America, Inc. and Samsung Telecommunications
America L.L.C. Network-1 seeks, among others things, monetary damages based
upon reasonable royalties.

The lawsuit alleges that that the Defendants have infringed and continue to
infringe the claims of the '227 Patent by selling and offering to sell Mac OS
and Windows operating systems as well as personal computers and tablets that
include versions of those operating systems.

The '227 Patent was among nine (9) patents and five (5) pending patent
applications acquired by Network-1, through its newly formed subsidiary,
Mirror Worlds Technologies, LLC, from Mirror Worlds, LLC (the "MW Patent
Portfolio") during the quarter. The '227 Patent entitled "Document Stream
Operating System" relates to methods that enable unified search, indexing,
displaying and archiving of documents in a computer system.The inventions
described in the '227 Patent resulted from the work done by Yale University
computer scientist, Professor David Gelernter, and his then graduate student,
Dr. Eric Freeman, in the mid-1990s. Both Professor Gelernter and Dr. Freeman
entered into consulting agreements with us as part of our acquisition of the
MW Patent Portfolio.

Professor Gelernter and Dr.Freeman are currently associated with Lifestreams
Technologies Corporation ("Lifestreams"), a company that develops next
generation applications and methodologies aimed at organizing and displaying
digital data. Lifestreams is a licensee of the MW Patent Portfolio. In
connection with the acquisition of the MW Patent Portfolio, we also acquired
an equity interest in Lifestreams. In addition, in July 2013 we made an
additional equity investment in Lifestreams and, as part of an amended license
agreement with Lifestreams related to the MW Patent Portfolio, we received a
warrant to purchase 7.5% of the outstanding common stock of Lifestreams on a
fully diluted basis.
