Augme Technologies, Inc. Engages Goodwin Procter

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 2, 2011) -   Augme Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: AUGT), a technology and services leader in interactive media marketing that offers the only patented and innovative end-to-end mobile marketing platform, today announced that it has retained Goodwin Procter, LLP, a leading national law firm. Goodwin Procter, with 850 attorneys, has offices in Boston, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, New York, San Diego, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, and Washington, D.C.

A pioneer in Internet and mobile marketing and services, Augme Technologies has developed an extensive intellectual property portfolio, and it believes that widespread infringement of the Company's IP claims exists in the marketplace.

"With Goodwin's assistance, we will continue to identify possible violations of our intellectual property rights and, if appropriate, to initiate legal proceedings against suspected infringers of such rights," noted Paul Arena, Chief Executive Officer of Augme Technologies, Inc.

The Goodwin team is headed by Thomas Scott, a partner in the firm's Litigation Department and chair of its Intellectual Property Group. Mr. Scott specializes in such intellectual property issues as patent prosecution, litigation and licensing, appellate practice (especially before the Federal Circuit) and technology licensing. He has developed significant patent portfolios for financial institutions and patent licensing organizations, and has negotiated patent licenses that have collectively generated more than $650 million in royalties.

"Tom Scott heads a strong team of highly respected attorneys," continued Arena. "With Goodwin's counsel, we will continue to evaluate opportunities to maximize and monetize the value of our intellectual property assets."
