Filing is focused on the application of PicPocket’s core, geofencing-IP to the use of drones at live events and in commercial services.

AUSTIN, TX – June 17, 2017 – PRLog — PicPocket is pleased to announce the national stage filings of its international patent application entitled “Drone Based Systems and Methods for Capturing Images.” The application pertains to the association between, and management of, a geofence and a drone for purposes of autonomous media and data collection of an area (or target) of interest – stationary or otherwise.

National patent protection for the technology is being sought in China, Taiwan, Canada and select European countries – the latter via a European regional application.
