Material Information Disclosure: UnitedCorp Releases Patent Portfolio Valuation Information for its Dedicated Mobile Content Sharing Geo-location Based Filters Technology

iFramed Patent Portfolio Independently Valued by TechInsights, at US $1.04 Billion

MIAMI, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Miami-based United American Corp (UnitedCorp), (OTC: UAMA) announced today that within the context of its legal and enforcement actions for patent infringement against Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP) related to Snap's use of geo-location based filters, it has released highlights of a third party valuation report completed by TechInsights witch was commissioned to review and value the company's technology rights of the iFramed patent global portfolio. The use of geo-location based filters is currently a critical component for the monetization of social media networks.

With over 240 engineers and analysts, TechInsights is one of the world's foremost authorities for evaluating and establishing patent commercial value. The TechInsights valuation is based on various scenarios including negotiated value, litigated value, and discounted cash flows arising from imputed royalties within potentially infringed markets. TechInsights concluded that based on imputed royalties for the iFramed patent family under current market conditions, the valuation for the patent family ranged from US$227 million in a litigation scenario to US$1.8 billion with central negotiation value for the portfolio at US$1.04 billion.

UnitedCorp holds all technology rights related to iFramed's dedicated mobile content sharing technology with digital integration of users' selectable external content based on their location through its wholly-owned subsidiary, iFramed Canada Ltd. The technology is the basis for SnapChat's ''GeoFilters'' provided to subscribers for photos and videos based on geo-location. Snap Inc. is a provider of image and video‐based social media services with head office in Venice, California.

As announced on July 11th, UnitedCorp will continue to pursue and enforce legal actions on Snap's infringement of the iFramed technology. The current lawsuit states that Snap has focused its core monetization strategy on the basis of the iFramed patent portfolio.

While Snap does hold a US patent for; ''Apparatus and method for supplying content aware photo filters'' as well as a recently acquired patent; ''Methods and systems of providing visual content editing functions'' these do not permit the use of a dedicated mobile content sharing technology with digital integration of users' selectable external content based on their location as is used in the SnapChat's ''GeoFilters''.

"Even with these patents Snap cannot use its ''GeoFilters'' without infringing on iFramed technology and they will need to cease doing so immediately." stated Benoit Laliberte, UnitedCorp's President.

UnitedCorp is also reviewing its rights and options with respect to use of the technology on other major social networks further to the global trend for using next generation integrated geo-localization branded user generated content into their platforms.

The company recently announced that is in the process of completing a Form 10 for submission to the US Securities and Exchange Commission and is also currently evaluating alternative exchanges for its currently trading securities.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
