TEL AVIV, Israel, Aug. 31, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- mBeach Software Inc. ("MBHS") (OTCBB:MBHS) today announced the filing of additional patent applications under the framework of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT). This move will facilitate the company's strategy to enter new international markets for its advanced, non-invasive system to detect and identify skin cancer.

Skin Cancer Scanning Ltd. ("SCS"), the wholly owned subsidiary, has already submitted a patent application in the United States (application number 11/464,838) with a priority date of August 2006. The patent office is currently examining this application and the company expects the patent to be approved and published by the end of 2010.

In addition to the United States, SCS has extended its patent applications in many important markets around the world. These countries include Canada, Japan, Australia, China, South Korea, New Zealand, Israel, South Africa, Brazil, Mexico, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Ukraine, and the European Union. These patent applications have now reached the national phase of registration.

These Patent applications are now at the stage of being translated into the relevant national languages of the various countries mentioned.

This is the stage before entering final review by each country's patent examination committees.

"Our intellectual property is one of the company's most valuable assets," said mBeach CEO Yossi Biderman. "We are taking all necessary measures to protect this asset, including patent applications and other appropriate actions. International growth is an important part of our strategy for growth. We want to make sure we have the right patent protection in all our major potential markets as soon as possible."
