15:06 EDTCAJ, GOOG, SAPGoogle, Canon, SAP among members of new cooperative patent-licensing group
Canon (CAJ), Google (GOOG), SAP (SAP), Asana, Dropbox and Newegg announced the formation of the License on Transfer, or LOT, Network, a cooperative patent-licensing agreement that the companies say will "cut down on patent troll litigation and the growing practice of patent privateering." The LOT agreement is a new kind of royalty-free cross-license meant to address these growing systemic problems. Member companies receive a license when the patents are transferred out of the LOT group. That means that companies retain their right to enforce a patent so long as they retain ownership of it. However, as soon as it is sold, a license to the other members becomes effective, protecting them from attacks by the troll to which the patent was sold. The agreement includes several other provisions that preserve a patent portfolio’s value, including carve-outs for certain M&A transactions and change of control, the group stated.
