Forward-looking Information

Certain statements in this release, other than statements of historical fact,
may include forward-looking information that involves various risks and
uncertainties that face the Company; such statements may contain such words as
"may", "would", "could", "will", "intend", "plan", "anticipate", "believe",
"estimate", "expect" and similar expressions, and may be based on management's
current assumptions and expectations related to all aspects of the wireless
and wireline telecommunications industries and the global economy. Risks and
uncertainties that may face the Company include, but are not restricted to:
licensing of the Company's patents can take an extremely long time and may be
subject to variable cycles; the Company is currently reliant on licensees
paying royalties under existing licensing agreements and additional licensing
of its patent portfolio to generate future revenues and increased cash flows;
the Company may be required to establish the enforceability of its patents in
court in order to obtain material licensing revenues; changes in patent laws
or in the interpretation or application of patent laws could materially
adversely affect the Company; a court may determine that certain of the
Company's patents are not infringed by certain standards or products or may
disagree with management with respect to whether one or more of the Company's
patents apply to certain standards or products, which could adversely affect
the Company; the Company will need to acquire or develop new patents to
continue and grow its business; fluctuations in foreign exchange rates impact
and may continue to impact the Company's revenues and operating expenses,
potentially adversely affecting financial results; the Company has made and
may make acquisitions of technologies or businesses which could materially
adversely affect the Company; the Company may require investment to translate
its intellectual property position into sustainable profit in the market; the
generation of future V-Chip revenues and the likelihood of the Company signing
additional V-Chip licenses could be negatively impacted by changes in
government regulation; the Company is dependent on its key officers and
employees; the price of the Company's common shares is volatile and subject to
market fluctuation; and the Company may be negatively affected by reduced
consumer spending due to the uncertainty of economic and geopolitical
conditions. These risks and uncertainties may cause actual results to differ
from information contained in this release, when estimates and assumptions
have been used to measure and report results. There can be no assurance that
any statements of forward-looking information contained in this release will
prove to be accurate.

Actual results and future events could differ materially from those
anticipated in such statements. These and all subsequent written and oral
statements containing forward-looking information are based on the estimates
and opinions of management on the dates they are made and expressly qualified
in their entirety by this notice. Except as required by applicable laws, the
Company assumes no obligation to update forward-looking statements should
circumstances or management's estimates or opinions change. Readers are
cautioned not to place undue reliance on any statements of forward-looking
information that speak only as of the date of this release. Additional
