HTC Joins 10 Other High Tech Companies to Become the Latest Licensee of DataQuill Patents

HTC (News - Alert) Corporation is the latest to sign a patent licensing agreement with DataQuill, an early innovator in the field of mobile data entry and access systems. The agreement gives HTC access to DataQuill’s U.S. Patent No. 6,058,304 for Data Entry System, U.S. Patent No. 7,139,591 for Hand Held Telecommunications and Data Entry Device, and portfolio.

The other Licensees of DataQuill Patents include the major manufacturers like Nokia, Motorola, Inc., LG Electronics Inc., Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., Palm, Inc. (News - Alert), and Hewlett-Packard Company, among others.

With hundreds of patents in the field of mobile Internet access technologies, DataQuill boasts an impressive patent. With its patent technologies, DataQuill has made important contributions in the development of modern smartphones and other portable computing devices: wireless Internet access, touch-sensitive screens and other reading sensors, downloading and updating applications, merchandising, and the integration of cameras with such devices.

The recent winning of U.S. Patent No. 8,290,538 has further expanded the company’s patent portfolio. In addition to new claims covering aspects of smartphones, the new patent also includes claims that cover tablets and similar computing devices.

Another achievement relates to the company’s launching of the next phase of its licensing campaign through its long-standing legal representation at Resolution Strategies, and Global IP Law Group.

“DataQuill’s patent portfolio remains one of the strongest, most challenged, most valuable patent portfolios in the world. The technology is critically important to modern smartphones and other devices, and DataQuill looks forward to completing license agreements with many additional industry participants,” founder and partner of Global IP Law Group, David Berten explained in a statement.

DataQuill is open for more licensing agreements, and interested to offer more favorable license terms to companies that proactively seek to enter license agreements with the company.

Few months back, DataQuill Limited (BVI) retained Global IP, and announced that it was entertaining offers to purchase the company or its portfolio of patents.
