The continuation patent will be issued as United States (“U.S.”) Patent No. 8,949,780 and is a continuation of U.S. Patent No. 7,716,629, which is a continuation patent of U.S. Patent No. 6,826,744.Collectively, they form the underlying patents (the “Patents”) under the Company’s SiteFlash™ and SiteFlash-derived products
