ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla., June 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Energy Telecom (OTCBB:ENRG) ("Energy Telecom" or the "Company") announced that on June 19, 2013, it filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office a Continuation-in-Part utility patent application, number 13/921606, which claims numerous benefits including the ability to control the output sound pressure level of its telecommunication eyewear's audio system to deliver sound at levels lower than mandated by industrial safety standards.
This important application is a continuation of the benefits described in the Company's Zone of Safety patent (U.S. number 8,243,973, providing coverage through 2031), a multi-claim utility patent application related to its innovative 'Zone of Safety' technology for the benefit of workers in hazardous locations, those enjoying sports outdoors, as well as a variety of other applications. The new audio control benefits allow the Company's telecom eyewear to not only deliver wireless communication, but also simultaneously protect the wearers' hearing from noise levels higher than allowed by safety standards mandated around the world.
Tom Rickards, President of Energy Telecom stated, "We are very pleased to further develop our technology to make possible an eyewear that provides the ultimate in safety for those working and playing in potentially hazardous locations. Our goal is to help achieve the ultimate in safety for workers while on the job or recreational users engaging in often hazardous and noisy outdoor activities."
Mr. Rickards continued: "We will continue to provide our partners that make, market and distribute our popular eyewear with the best innovations and global intellectual property protection possible. We believe this Continuation-in-Part patent application, filed by our team at Malloy & Malloy, P.L., will help maintain our superior patent portfolio."
