A new patent application was granted on March 30th, 2021. It is a so-called “Continuation” of our US Fingerprint patent which refines the claims of this important patent, hence enforcing our protection in the US.
This process requires the US Patent Office to approve the modifications of the claims. Such approval needs at least two conditions to be met: first, the USPTO checks if the requested extension is indeed covered by the description of the invention given in the patent and second the patent examiners check if the claims are acceptable. They must also consider already existing patents in the field. The granting of the patent is a great success for our innovation and intellectual property strategy.
