Our Smart Pools appeal to patent owners

1 Because low transaction costs enable patent owners to license at a competitive price point
2 Competitive license pricing facilitates high technology adoption and high license saturation levels
3 High technology adoption results in interoperability of solutions and end consumer satisfaction
4 High license saturation means less free riding by your competitors, less litigation expenses, and higher licensing revenues

Our Smart Pools appeal to technology implementers

1 Because a Smart Pool is a one-stop-shop to acquire the licenses needed to enter an emerging tech market at a feasible price point
2 Future litigation risks are mitigated by defense features
3 Simple, flexible, and predictable payments that eliminate the need for per-unit expensive royalties with auditing duties
4 There are no recurring contract administration efforts once signed up.
