Blingby says new patent boosts women in IP

Blingby said it has been granted a patent by the US Patent Office which relates to a video player “and a plurality of metadata areas that are configured to display, in real-time, streamed metadata items that are related to content of the video streamed by the video player at a particular playing time, via a visual pattern.”

Fortune Magazine has reported that only 8% of patents in the United States are held by women, Blingby said.

“Marcia Favale, First Inventor, is proud to join the ranks of inventors and female inventors, and shares the patent milestone with Blingby co-founder, Robert Stanicic,” said Blingby.

Favale, Blingby founder and CEO, said: “Representation is important, and we hope to add to the men and women who inspire others to believe in success, especially in technology.”
