TOKYO, July 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UBIC, Inc. (Nasdaq:UBIC) (TSE:2158), a leading provider of international litigation support and big-data analysis services, today announced it was granted a U.S. patent recognizing the Company's development of unique information technology used in the archiving and retrieval of historical information related to the legal discovery process. The patent number 8793277 was assigned by the U.S. Patent Office and this patent will be issued on July 29, 2014.
"UBIC is quickly amassing an impressive patent portfolio and continues to execute its intellectual property strategy by obtaining patents through fast-track procedures; namely, the Accelerated Examination system in Japan and the Patent Prosecution Highway in the United States," UBIC Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Masahiro Morimoto said.
UBIC's Custodian Mapping is integrated into the company's Lit i View data analysis platform. The software makes it easier to identify potential evidence materials related to particular persons, known as "custodians," who may be in possession of documents relevant to a particular litigation or investigation. Such custodian-related materials often exist within very large masses of electronic data and are assembled by a services provider like UBIC for companies in litigation or under investigation.
The Company received a patent for this technology in Japan on November 25, 2011.
UBIC, Inc. (Nasdaq:UBIC) (TSE:2158) is a leading provider of e-discovery and digital forensic services for Asia and the world. UBIC has extensive experience working with electronically stored information composed in Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) languages and utilizes that expertise for clients involved in cross-border litigation, corporate investigations, intellectual property disputes and much more. At the forefront of e-discovery innovation, UBIC's proprietary Lit i View® platform is moving the industry from "fact discovery" to "future discovery" by allowing clients to analyze e-mail messages and digital communications found in big data to reveal patterns in human thought and behavior.
