*** American Express Travel Related Services Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 9 -- American Express Travel Related Services, New York, has been assigned a patent (8,352,343) developed by eight co-inventors for "using commercial share of wallet to compile marketing company lists." The co-inventors are Kathleen Haggerty, Staten Island, N.Y., Charles Christopher Lyon, Phoenix, Benedict O. Okoh, New York, Robert E. Phelan, Mendham, N.J., Jon Kevin Ruterman, Glendale, Ariz., Geraldine A. Turner, Sandy Hook, Va., Chao M. Yuan, Montclair, N.J., and Arnab Biswas, Calcutta, India.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Commercial size of spending wallet ("CSoSW") is the total business spend of a business including cash but excluding bartered items. Commercial share of wallet ("CSoW") is the portion of the spending wallet that is captured by a particular financial company. A modeling approach utilizes various data sources to provide outputs that describe a company's spend capacity. Marketing companies that sell lists compile those lists by searching one or more databases for names and/or businesses that match certain criteria. Those marketing companies can use the CSoW/CSoSW modeling approach to show predicted spend and/or revenues for each company on a list. This makes the list more valuable to list buyers."

*** Exelis Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 9 -- Exelis, McLean, Va., has been assigned a patent (8,353,003) developed by Lee Paul Noehring, Glendale, Ariz., David Allan Schollmeyer, Chandler, Ariz., and Chad William Mercer, Gilbert, Ariz., for a "system and method for controlling a flow of data a network interface controller to a host processor." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A system and method for controlling a flow of data from a network interface controller (NIC) to a host processor coupled to the NIC. Data such as IP packets are received by the NIC and may be transmitted to the host processor for further processing such as firewall processing. The NIC is in communication with the host processor using, for example, a software driver running on the host processor. The NIC may monitor the processing load on the host processor as it handles packet data received from the NIC. As the processing load increases, the NIC may begin to throttle the quantity of packets being sent to the host processor in order to avoid overloading the host processor. The throttling may be governed by a heuristic throttling function." The patent application was filed on Sept. 27, 2005 (11/236,696). 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=8,353,003&OS=8,353,003&RS=8,353,003 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.
