Syndicast was founded in 2000 to solve the challenge syndicated media providers have in broadcasting programming over the Internet without breaching network and affiliate distribution agreements. Since conception, the Internet has grown steadily and the types of syndicated content has grown from traditional television and radio broadcasting to all imaginable content.
The invention which served to solve the simple syndicated media broadcast dilemma now applies to every form of media conceivable where advertisers or other content providers desire to interleave user-specific psychographic, demographic or geocentric content relative to a user or users.
Syndicast Corporation was founded on August 7, 2000 by Adam G. Southam and J. Sven Gustafson. Southam had previously invented and successfully patented his “Computer Facilitated Product Selling System” (US Patent #6,594,641), which became the cornerstone of Reshare Commerce, a Software-as-a-Service company with several dozen licenses to Fortune 500 companies. The conception of the Syndicast patent took many months and application was finally filed on September 12, 2000. After 4,905 days (over 13 years) of prosecution, the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued the Syndicast patent (US #8,768,747) on July 1, 2014.
