DataTreasury Corporation has licensed its products and intellectual property to companies such as NetDeposit, Bank Hapoalim, Goldleaf Financial Solutions (limited license with restrictions), Merrill Lynch, and Diebold, which are companies that properly respect and appropriately value and understand the importance of intellectual property (IP.) Unfortunately over the past several years, DataTreasury has been left with no alternative but litigation with corporations that have repeatedly chosen to ignore or simply refuse to seek a lawful license of DataTreasury's IP. After five plus arduous years of rigorous litigation supported by the law firm of Nix, Patterson and Roach,LLP, DataTreasury has successfully attained settlements and licensing of DataTreasury's IP with JP Morgan Chase, Bank One, Ingenico, and RDM. Prior to these settlements with these multiple defendants, hundreds of thousands of pages of prior art were submitted to the Court in an attempt to invalidate theses patents--but to no avail. Defendants JP Morgan Chase, Bank One and Ingenico entered Consent Judgments before the Court stating the patents were validly issued and enforceable.

DataTreasury's intellectual property continues to be tested in the courts and challenged at the Patent Office by defendants with vast legal budgets and unfettered access to the world's largest law firms and the most powerful lobbying groups. The following pages chronicle the history of DataTreasury, the aforementioned litigation and the resulting settlement timelines during which DataTreasury successfully protected its most valuable assets.

We share our story not only for your protection and as testament to our dedication to superior technical innovation, but to request respect for all proud, pioneering inventors and artists, large and small.
