MyMedicalRecords Terminates Agreement With WebMD, Will Refile Patent Infringement Complaint

MyMedicalRecords Terminates Agreement With WebMD, Will Refile Patent 
Infringement Complaint 
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/03/13 --    MMRGlobal, Inc.
(OTCQB: MMRF) today announced that MyMedicalRecords, Inc., a wholly
owned subsidiary of MMRGlobal (collectively, "MMR"), has terminated
the written Agreement it signed with WebMD Health Corp. and WebMD
Health Services Group, Inc. (collectively, "WebMD") which MMR
announced on June 7, 2013, in connection with the dismissal of MMR's
patent infringement complaint. MMR is a leading provider of Personal
Health Records (PHRs) and electronic document management and imaging
systems for healthcare professionals. The action was originally filed
against WebMD on February 11, 2013, in the U. S. District Court for
the Central District of California, case number CV 13-00979
(ODW/SHx). As a material inducement for MMR to dismiss its complaint,
the parties signed the Agreement setting forth certain terms and
conditions including formal negotiations to resolve the matter
without the timing constraints imposed by the lawsuit.  
MMR and WebMD also specifically agreed that MMR would have the right
to refile the litigation without prejudice at any time. Since the
signing of the Agreement, the parties have worked to resolve the
matter in person and with legal counsel on both coasts without
results satisfactory to either party. However, since that time, MMR
also received an additional U.S. Patent, No. 8,498,883, entitled
"Method for Providing a User with a Service for Accessing and
Collecting Prescriptions," which it appears WebMD may also infringe.  
According to Robert H. Lorsch, MMRGlobal CEO, "The Agreement that we
dismiss the complaint to facilitate settlement may have been a
blessing in disguise because MMR has received at least one additional
patent to include in a complaint that was not issued at the time of
the original filing." 
Therefore, and based on a relationship with WebMD that goes back to a
Goldman Sachs introduction in 2007, MMR has decided that it is in its
best interest to terminate the Agreement and to refile its complaint
so that MMR can avail itself to the benefits of discovery and the
prospect of adding the "883" patent and other patents to the
complaint. Given that MMR invested nearly eight months in good faith
negotiations with WebMD, the door will always be open to a fair
negotiated resolution. 
MMR understands that PHRs are and will continue to be part of WebMD's
business plans and believes that WebMD infringes on one or more MMR
patents, which compels either a positive business relationship
between the companies or a Federal Court decision on the merits. MMR
further believes they will continue to be relevant to WebMD's
business based on Meaningful Use requirements starting in 2014.
Meaningful Use, mandated under the Health Information Technology for
Economic and Clinical Health Act ("HITECH"), includes core
requirements making Personal Health Records available to virtually
all Americans.
