A copy of the slide presentation that the Company intends to deliver at the conference is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K (“Current Report”) as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein solely for purposes of this Item 7.01 disclosure.

The slides being furnished herewith contain statements that are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward looking statements are inherently subject to material risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the risk that the Company’s patent licensing revenue may be adversely affected by the expiration of one of its significant patents in April 2006, the risks that the Company will not conclude additional license agreements, possible incurrence of significant patent litigation expenses or adverse legal determinations finding the Company’s patents invalid or not to have been infringed, as well as other risks and uncertainties referred to in the presentation and in the Company’s reports filed from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain of the information contained in the slides is derived from independent research reports and similar sources, which the Company believes to be reliable but which it has not independently verified and for which it cannot be responsible. The Company undertakes no duty or obligation to update any of the information contained in the slides.

The information in this Current Report, including the exhibit attached hereto, is being furnished pursuant to Regulation FD, and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section. The information in this Current Report, including the exhibit, shall not be incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, unless and only to the extent that such filing specifically refers to the information incorporated herein by reference. This Current Report will not be deemed an admission as to the materiality of any information in this Current Report that is required to be disclosed solely by Regulation FD.
