The Kudelski Group and Google have entered into a multi-year patent cross licensing agreement.
While the specific terms remain confidential, the agreement provides the companies a patent license for their respective businesses, subject to certain limitations. Google will make a one-time payment to The Kudelski Group.
“We are pleased to enter into this agreement, which will allow us to continue to focus on building great products,” said Allen Lo, Google’s Deputy General Counsel for Patents. “Google has a portfolio of more than 55,000 patents and applications worldwide and is actively cross-licensing its patents in support of Google’s product ecosystem.”
