ICM is the provider! If you doubt that ask Jim Stark of GPRE why (as a loyal and the most significant Greenshift licensee) they are paying ICM COE royalties. Then you will know why.

Will you please clarify the relationship with GS Cleantech? I'm wondering if there's still a relationship here with GS Cleantech's patents. Did Green Plains switch technology at some or all of the plants? Are you still using GS cleantech's technology in the ICM plants?

Our response:

We have not switched technologies.

Licensing patents is not the same as licensing technology. The license agreements for utilizing the patents are still in place with GS CleanTech.

Let me know if there is anything else I can provide.

The connection between a patent and a license is an often confused area of law that can lead to lawsuits by stock holders or others with standing against both licensee and patent holder if infringement is not upheld.

What he say? They paying royalties to both GERS and ICM?

" .... The ICM system is offered on a non-royalty bearing basis"

ICM previously argued that GreenShift's inventions were unpatentable and failed. That argument was raised by ICM before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted GreenShift's first two patents.

The company also warns that it has a right to royalties for the corn oil extracted with GreenShift technology as far back as 2006, when the company got its first patent.

Greenshift did at one point have an indirect relationship with Noble Americas.

They were both involved with one of GERS first potential customers.
