Google, Samsung, LG, HTC, Foxconn, Coolpad, BQ, HMD Global and Allview agreed on joint use of patents
Google announced the creation of patent initiatives PAX, the main idea of which is to simplify life for companies operating on the market for Android devices.
At the moment, members of the PAX are nine companies: Google, Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics, HTC, Foxconn Technology Group, Huawei, BQ, HMD Global and Allview. These nine companies own more than 230 thousand patents, which are registered worldwide. Companies that are members of the PAX, agree to joint use of each other patents. No royalties are not provided.
Google appealed to all companies, big and small, to consider membership in PAX, which is free.
For small companies this is a great opportunity to use a large number of patents, without thinking about possible litigation.
