NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 13, 2014) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) SmartMetric, while disappointed with the ruling of the Federal Circuit Court in denying its motions in a ruling handed down today, is focused on moving forward into production of its world's first fingerprint activated EMV credit and debit cards targeted at the current 1.65 billion issued chip payments card market.
"The opportunity the company's biometric payments card technology represents to SmartMetric is enormous and in a short period of time can even be greater for the company than the one off value of its patent infringement lawsuit," said the company President, Chaya Hendrick.
SmartMetric is a publicly traded technology company that has added a fingerprint scanner built inside EMV payment credit and debit chip cards, thereby creating a second layer of biometric authentication protection in defending against card fraud. The company is now actively marketing its technology to card issuing financial institutions around the world.
