Intellectual Property (“IP”) protection is an important component of the KosherSwitch® brand. Several patents have been granted to date:
- United States Patent & Trademark Office U.S. Patent No. 7,872,576 (40 claims covering both device- and method- claims).
- Israel Patent Office granted IL Patent Registration No. 188,499 (40 claims covering both device- and method- claims).
Note that the protection provided by the patents is broad – covering the countless ways that the technology may be implemented beyond our flagship wall switches. It includes all modes of communication/triggering within a device, and is not limited to the opto-transmission/detection currently utilized. Similarly, it includes control of any circuit (not just an electrical circuit), so many other derivative applications are included within the scope of our Intellectual Property assets.
