ALEXANDRIA, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/12/14 -- Marathon Patent Group, Inc. (OTCQB: MARA) ("Marathon"), a patent licensing company, is pleased to announced the archive of CEO Doug Croxall's recent live interview by Michal Yorba on Clear Channel Business Talk Radio's "The Traders Network."
Following Marathon's subsidiary, CRFD Research's, recently announced patent infringement lawsuits against AT&T, Comcast and DirecTV, CEO Doug Croxall was interviewed on the Company's unique business model and its current patent monetization initiatives.

Network: Clear Channel
Show: The Trader Network
Station: DFW 1190AM
Host: Michael Yorba
In his interview, Mr. Croxall explained how Marathon's business model and strategy differs from most other publicly-traded patent companies. While many other patent holding companies merely rely on a litigation-heavy strategy, which is often times characterized by a long, drawn out, expensive, and binary litigation process -- typically against one or a few large defendant(s) -- to hopefully reach a verdict of infringement against the defendant(s) in both the U.S. District Court and then if necessary, later in the Federal Circuit Court.
He emphasized that Marathon is not merely in the "patent litigation business," but rather it follows a patent licensing business model -- whereby Marathon generates revenue by seeking to negotiate and execute a licensing agreement with those defendants that are in need for a license to permit ongoing and authorized use of the infringed patent(s).
He spoke about how Marathon's business model shifts many of the heavy costs associated with litigation and licensing to a revenue-contingency model. Croxall also articulated how, unlike most other patent-holding companies, Marathon attempts to diversify with the patent assets class by acquiring patents that are outside the traditional telecom and tech industries.
Lastly, when asked which of the nine current patent portfolios (which encompass 118 patents) investors should take note of, he commented that whereas he likes all of the portfolios Marathon owns, he was quite excited about the prospects of Marathon's CRFD portfolio, for which they currently have nine defendants in suit.
Afterwards, Clear Channel Radio host Michael Yorba of The Traders Network was quoted as saying, "Marathon Patent Group is an obvious leader in the Intellectual Property and patent litigation space for years to come and what's even better, is they do it while protecting innovation of inventors who don't have the means to otherwise to protect themselves."
Marathon currently owns a total of 118 patents across nine wholly-owned subsidiaries. Marathon has ongoing licensing campaigns on six of those portfolios and currently has suits filed against 76 different defendants.
