An exemplary method may comprise the steps of receiving a bid from a registry seeking such preferred placement for a domain that may be administered by the registry, generating a quality score for the domain, and determining the preferred placement based upon the bid and the quality score." The patent application was filed on Dec. 11, 2009 (12/636,394). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,370,217&OS=8,370,217&RS=8,370,217 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

*** FonWallet Transaction Solutions Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 7 -- FonWallet Transaction Solutions, Rancho Murieta, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,370,265) developed by four co-inventors for a "system and method for managing status of a payment instrument." The co-inventors are Todd R. Coulter, Rancho Murieta, Calif., Mordechai E. Kaplinsky, Brooklyn, N.Y., Christopher E. Lewis, Tempe, Ariz., and Jeffery A. Warmington, Wellington, Fla.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A transaction processing service operates as an intermediary between acquirers of financial transaction requests and issuing institutions that process the financial transaction requests. The intermediary service enables a customer to selectively change the status of an account's associated with a payment instrument by activating or deactivating the account. The intermediary service may manage account status locally using a rules module. Alternatively, the issuing institution may manage account status, while the intermediary service provides an interface for customers. A customer communicates with the intermediary service to direct the service to change the account status. The intermediary service determines the account's issuing institution and provides an indication to the issuing institution of the current status of the account (or of the change in status). The intermediary service may provide the indication by transmitting a message to the issuing institution or by storing the account status information in its own database. The issuing institution may then request account status from the intermediary service whenever it needs the information, such as when it receives an authorization request." The patent application was filed on Aug. 18, 2010 (12/859,205).

*** Honeywell International Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 7 -- Honeywell International, Morristown, N.J., has been assigned a patent (8,369,812) developed by Bob Lehman, Peoria, Ariz., for a "method and system for detection of passive intermodulation interference emissions." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method and system for detecting intermodulation emissions, such as passive intermodulation emissions, is provided. The method comprises retrieving signal quality measurement (SQM) data, and determining whether there is an intermodulation hit in the SQM data. If there is no intermodulation hit, the SQM data is stored in a first data set; if there is an intermodulation hit, the SQM data is stored in a second data set. The method then determines whether there are one or more faults in the first data set. If there are, a confirmation count for an intermodulation failure is cleared, and the method starts again. If there are not one or more faults in the first data set, a determination is made whether there are one or more faults in the second data set. If not, the confirmation count is cleared, and the method starts again. An intermodulation failure can be confirmed if there are one or more faults in the second data set." The patent application was filed on Feb. 5, 2009 (12/366,412). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,369,812&OS=8,369,812&RS=8,369,812 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** Cellco Partnership Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 7 -- Cellco Partnership, Basking Ridge, N.J., has been assigned a patent (8,369,792) developed by Scott Anthony Townley, Gilbert, Ariz., and Derek Hongwei Bao, Concord, Calif., for a "methodology to analyze sector capacity in data-only mobile-wireless network." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Infrastructure network service measurements of time needed to complete data transfers are used to determine the capacity of a technology sector of a wireless packet data communication base station, such as a 1xEV-DO sector, using infrastructure network service measurements. The process, for example, may predict when the radio-frequency link between wireless data subscribers and a wireless base station becomes sufficiently congested that each user experiences reduced data speeds. The determination of capacity can be made down to the sector-carrier (a single carrier within a base station sector) level. The prediction can be cast in terms of time, which allows network service providers to plan the growth of their base stations to meet subscriber needs." The patent application was filed on Feb. 25, 2011 (13/035,250). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,369,792&OS=8,369,792&RS=8,369,792 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.
