(“DeepMarkit” or the “Corporation”) (TSX VENTURE:MKT) is pleased to announce that it has received a filing receipt from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) with respect to a provisional patent application relating to its innovative Fetchbot™ (“FetchBot”) marketing and promotions platform. The Corporation’s first provisional patent application outlines the core technology of the FetchBot system and method which enables the efficient and cost-effective generation of “Do It Yourself” customized games for use in advertising, marketing, promotion and similar industries, without requiring specialized knowledge or ability in game development.
