Marathon's CEO Comments on Patent Reform Being Removed From Senate Consideration and Will Present at the LD Micro Invitational

ALEXANDRIA, VA--(Marketwired - May 28, 2014) - Marathon Patent Group, Inc. ( OTCQB : MARA ) ("Marathon"), a patent licensing company, announced today its CEO, Doug Croxall, will present at the 4th Annual LD MICRO Invitational being held at the Luxe Sunset, Los Angeles, on Wednesday, June 4th, 2014 at 1:00 pm PDT.

Separately, last Wednesday Senator Patrick Leahy, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, announced that "because there is not sufficient support behind any comprehensive (patent reform) deal, I am taking the patent bill off the Senate Judiciary Committee agenda." Senator Leahy's stated he pulled the bill over concerns that the House-passed bill "would have severe unintended consequences on legitimate patent holders."

Doug Croxall, CEO of Marathon, commented, "Over the past several years, the possibility of different versions of patent reform from multiple legislators have resulted in a great deal of uncertainty for our industry. The United States patent system is the best in the world and inventors deserve strong intellectual property laws to protect their inventions as afforded by the U.S Constitution. I applaud Senator Leahy for recognizing that an unbalanced approach will only undermine those participants that our patent laws are designed to protect."
