Ericsson: making the call on licensing


With thousands of patents to its name, Ericsson is engaged in more than 100 licensing agreements and is committed to improving the overall licensing landscape. In an interview with WIPR, director of IP rights policy Claudia Tapia explains how.

Ericsson welcomed 2016 in much the same way as it ended 2015.

On January 14 the company announced it would extend its global patent licensing deal with Chinese phone maker Huawei. 

A few weeks before, on December 21, it revealed another licensing agreement with Apple. At the same time, it announced an end to patent disputes between the companies.
