Teleshuttle collaborates with partner
companies to develop the innovations of founder Richard Reisman. These
generally relate to powerful interactive tools and media for human
communication, collaboration, culture, and commerce.
Teleshuttle has multiple patent portfolios in development,
and well over 100 companies have licensed one or more of these
patents, including licenses for use by nearly every major provider of
smartphones and PCs.
Areas of activity include:
An entirely new architecture for efficiently pricing digital
content/services in the context of an ongoing relationship. FairPay is based on
customer dialogs about value, and develops a buyer reputation based on Internet feedback, to
go beyond "freemium," to a far more efficient and dynamically adaptive hybrid of free and paid
FairPay was presented 12/1/11 at an MIT Enterprise Forum of NYC symposium on
"Better Strategies for Monetizing Digital Offerings," and on the
HBR Blog on 11/18/13, and discussions
with potential strategic partners are in progress.
a rich platform for the growing trend toward multi-screen viewing and simultaneous, or coactive, use of
TV and the Web. CoTV creates a powerful new compound medium that fully maintains the best of both
(and works with ordinary TVs and PCs/tablets/phones as companion devices)
while riding the trend toward user-centered media multitasking in the
wireless, networked home. The first ten Reisman CoTV-related
patents issued in 2011-14, with more allowed and pending.

and Semantic Web (Sold) - A portfolio including
patents issued in 2005-2012, with
others pending. Sold 7/6/09 to

- Internet push distribution and software
update (Sold) - In the early 1990s, Teleshuttle developed a patent portfolio that
was later licensed to BTG International for commercialization. This
portfolio includes sixteen patents awarded in 1997-2014. BTG's
licensing efforts led to patent infringement suits against Microsoft and Apple. On 3/31/06, BTG announced the sale of these patent rights for $35 million,
plus a share of future profits, and that BTG and Teleshuttle would no longer pursue those
suits. These patents and continuing license efforts are controlled by Intellectual Ventures.
- Other patent portfolios in development
relate to such areas as data exchange for product usage
data and ratings (aspects of "Big Data" and "The Internet of Things"), digital media storage
and asset management, and The Idea Adoption Agency
(communities/marketplaces for open, collaborative development of intellectual property,
and advanced methods for collaboration and reputation management).
Consulting clients have included News Corporation/TVGuide,
Dow Jones/Telerate, Euro RSCG/MVBMS, HealthScout/RxRemedy, AppliedTheory Communications,
BTG International, as well as Intellectual Ventures, RPX
Corporation, and other prominent companies in the
Intellectual Property space.
Teleshuttle was founded by Richard Reisman in
1994 as an
innovative online software/service provider. Reisman is an innovator and thought
leader, advancing powerful interactive tools/media for human communication,
collaboration, culture, and commerce since long before the Web. His media experience includes developing and marketing
CoTV at Teleshuttle, a senior management role at HealthScout.com,
leading the design and development of News Corp's original TVGuide Online
service through market testing in the early '90s, managing development for Baseline

graphics, and online communities. Reisman has over 40 patents and many more
allowed or pending. See Bio for
