Watchit Technologies Inc. Solidifies Patents

US and EU Are on the List With Others to Follow

ARDEN, NC--(Marketwire - February 7, 2011) - WatchIt Technologies Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WTCT) announced today that, through its Intellectual Property attorneys, Woodard, Emhardt, Moriarty, McNett & Henry, LLP, it has successfully nationalized its International Patent application in the United States and the European Union. Previously, one application was filed for an International patent. The PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty), to which most countries belong, gives either 30 or 31 months depending on the country to Nationalize the application for specific countries. To date, WatchIt Technologies has nationalized patents for the United States and the European Union. Included in the EU Nationalization process are a few other countries that are not officially included in the official designation of the European Union.

"In the months ahead, the company will be evaluating the benefits and advantages of including other countries in the process," stated Max Bennett, President and CEO of WatchIt Technologies. "Under consideration at the present time are China, Canada, Australia, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, India and South Korea. Some of the countries are obvious candidates, while others will need additional evaluation."

According to the company, in the United States, it will take at least 1 to 1 1/2 years for the patent office to review the patent information. During that time the patent is considered "pending." Once its evaluation is completed, the United States will "issue" a patent, while other countries will "grant" a patent.

"This is a long and tedious process that will be one of the major expenses, outside of development, that the company will incur," according to Bennett. "In the continuing discussions with potential major investors, the patents have been a very important part of the attraction to the company. In some instances, the inclusion of certain countries has been a criterion for continuing the negotiations. With this step complete and a road map of future decisions laid out with the attorneys, we are confident we can move forward on all fronts."

In a related matter, the company was made aware of an inconsistency in the language that was used in referencing the independent lab that performed the testing on the "fuel reformer." The recent tests referred to in our news releases were performed by Environmental Testing Corporation (ETC), a high altitude testing facility located in Aurora, CO. They are an industry leader in their field, with over 30 years' experience. As stated on their website: "ETC is recognized by the EPA and the California Air Resources Board as a laboratory capable of performing vehicle emissions certification. ETC is also ISO 17025 accredited for performing many types of certification tests." "http://www.etclab.com/Vehicle-Emissions-Certification.asp." "We mistakenly referenced ETC as being EPA-certified, while our intentions were to state as they do on their website that the company is recognized by the EPA and the California Air Resources Board as a laboratory capable of performing vehicle emissions certification."
