15:06 EDTGOOG, CAJ, 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.

YouTube, which implemented Content ID in 2007 to help producers manage their rights and generate revenues from copyright-infringing content, has hit $1B in payments to companies that participate in the program and Fred von Lohmann, legal director for copyright at Google, credits the program for diffusing much of the tension the site previously had with copyright holders, reported Financial Times. Via Content ID, copyright owners can “monetize” their content by allowing ads to be sold against it or have the video blocked and taken down and von Lohmann told Financial Times that the "vast majority" choose to monetize.
