LANSING, Mich. — August 19, 2015 — Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Inc., a developer of advanced spider silk based fibers, announced that it, along with the University of Notre Dame, filed two additional patents to strengthen its intellectual property protection surrounding its transgenic silkworms and spider silk technologies.
These patent applications are designed to protect the creation of the Kraig Labs transgenic silkworms and the resultant chimeric spider silk. The Company currently has open patent actions in 10 countries, including key silk producer and consumer nations.
“From our inception, Kraig Labs has remained dedicated to a spirit of innovation and refused to accept can’t as an answer,” said Kim Thompson, company founder and CEO. “This pursuit of the seemingly impossible led to a series of first of its kind inventions, including our recently announced Dragon Silk™ genetic line. The filling of these two additional patents seeks to protect the creativity and value of that work for Kraig Labs and our shareholders, and goes hand in hand with our commercial market development plans.”
