BlackBerry, in partnership con Teletry per licenze di brevetto

BlackBerry continua a firmare nuovi contratti di licenza di brevetto e l'ultimo ad essere annunciato è un accordo di licenza strategica con Teletry. Come parte dell'accordo tra Teletry e BlackBerry, Teletry avrà il diritto di concedere in sublicenza un'ampia gamma di brevetti BlackBerry alla maggior parte dei produttori di smartphone globali. Sebbene i dettagli finanziari dell'annuncio non siano stati divulgati, BlackBerry manterrà la proprietà di circa 40.000 brevetti e applicazioni mentre Teletry si focalizzerà direttamente su brevetti correlati ai produttori di smartphone. Ciò consentirà effettivamente a BlackBerry di allontanarsi ulteriormente dall'hardware consentendo al tempo stesso di rivolgersi ai mercati principali.

Di seguito il comunicato stampa ufficiale:


BlackBerry Announces New Patent Licensing Partnership with Industry Leader
WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Nov. 15, 2017) - BlackBerry Ltd (NYSE:BB)(TSX:BB) announced today that it has entered into a strategic licensing agreement with Teletry, an independent operating company with expertise in building relationships between patent holders and licensees in the wireless technology industry.

As part of the arrangement between Teletry and BlackBerry, Teletry will have the right to sublicense a broad range of BlackBerry patents to a majority of global smartphone manufacturers. BlackBerry will retain ownership of approximately 40,000 patents and applications and operate its own licensing program outside of Teletry's sublicensing rights.

BlackBerry chose Kasim Alfalahi and his team at Teletry because of their expertise and track record in licensing important portfolios through long-term relationships.

"We are pleased to be working with one of the pioneers of the modern smartphone who created one of the most valuable patent portfolios in the industry," said Kasim Alfalahi on behalf of Teletry. "Through our new licensing program, Teletry looks forward to working with global smartphone manufacturers to license these innovative technology assets."

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
