Voip-Pal.com Asserts its Lawful Intercept Technology is the First Patented Method of Intercepting VoIP Communications
BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Voip-Pal.com Inc. ("Voip-Pal", "Company") (OTC Pink: VPLM) asserts that its Lawful Intercept technology (U.S. Patent No. 8,422,507), is the first patented method for intercepting VoIP communications. The Voice over internet Protocol (VoIP) industry is experiencing very rapid growth, while traditional landline subscriptions are on the decline. In 2012 the VoIP industry saw revenues of $63 billion, and is currently experiencing double digit growth. With the number of mobile VoIP subscribers expected to reach 410 million by 2015, traditional wiretapping by law enforcement agencies is being rendered obsolete in that it is not effective in VoIP communications interception. Voip-Pal's Lawful Intercept patent was applied for in 2007, two years before Microsoft Corporation filed for a patent, for its own version entitled Legal Intercept in 2009, (US Patent Application 20110153809). Though both patent applications had substantial similarities, Voip-Pal's version had priority due to its earlier filing date. Microsoft's Legal Intercept was rejected by the USPTO in 2011 and Voip-Pal's Lawful Intercept was allowed in January of 2013 and issued as a patent this past April.
The ability to intercept VoIP communications is a critical part of the global war on terrorism. Governments around the world have blocked Microsoft's SKYPE and similar applications due to their inability to monitor communications for the purposes of law enforcement. Recently Saudi Arabia and India announced intentions to join the long list of countries that have already banned SKYPE, joining Turkey, Pakistan, and Egypt among many others across several continents. VoIP-Pal's Lawful Intercept was developed specifically to address the global demands of governments to enable law enforcement agencies the ability to perform live intercepts of VoIP communications. As the first patented technology of its kind, VoIP-Pal's Lawful Intercept stands alone as a vital tool for law enforcement agencies around the world.
As a result of recent concerns over potential invasions of privacy due to broad surveillance, Voip-Pal believes legislation for the provision of lawful intercept with all forms of internet telephony could be forthcoming. It is possible that the United States may take the lead in such legislations.
