Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On April 7, 2008, the Company entered into an Agreement with Acacia Patent Acquisition LLC. Under the Agreement, the Company agreed, subject to certain conditions, to sell to Acacia all of the Company's right, title and interest in its U.S. and foreign patents and patent applications (the "Patents") for a purchase price of $1.2 million.

Under the Agreement, Acacia has the right for 60 days to perform a due diligence investigation of the Patents, and during such 60-day period, the Company has agreed not to discuss or negotiate with any third parties regarding the Patents. Upon completion of the 60-day period, if Acacia determines, in its sole discretion, that the Patents are acceptable to it, then the Agreement will continue in full force and effect; however, if Acacia determines the Patents are unacceptable, the Agreement will automatically terminate.

The Company's agreement to sell the Patents to Acacia is subject to and conditioned upon receiving approval from Company shareholders holding at least a majority of its issued and outstanding shares.

The foregoing is a summary of some of the material terms of the Agreement, and is qualified by reference to the complete terms and conditions of the Agreement.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
